The Milwaukee Brewers have signed relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez to a one-year contract worth $3.25 million.
Rodriguez, 32, can earn an additional $550,000 in incentives.
Last season Rodriguez split time between the Brewers and Baltimore Orioles finishing with a 2.70 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings. Rodriguez should occupy a spot in-front of Jim Henderson in the Brewers bullpen. Should Henderson falter or have an injury, Rodriguez should be the first in line for saves.
