According to multiple outlets, the Milwaukee Brewers are bringing free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez back into the fold, this time with a two-year deal.
Rodriguez, who turned 33 in January, assumed the closer role for the Brewers unexpectedly last season on Opening Day and turned in an All-Star campaign, saving 44 games in a league-high 66 games finished. He posted a 3.04 earned run average, as well.
The Brewers first acquired him during the stretch run of the 2011 season, and he struggled along with the rest of the bullpen in 2012. The Brewers signed him to a one-year free agent deal in 2013, and would later trade him to Baltimore. He signed a second one-year deal at the start of last season.
