Report: Details finalized in new deal between Brewers and K-Rod
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) The Brewers and pitcher Francisco Rodriguez have hashed out the necessary details on his new contract, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
However, Rodriguez has to pass a physical for the deal to become official. It was previously reported that Rodriguez agreed to a two-year, $13 million deal that includes a club option for the 2017 season.
With the new contract in place, the process for Rodriguez to obtain a work visa from Venezuela has begun.
Nicknamed K-Rod, the 33-year-old closer reunites with the team he played for from 2011-2013.
Brewers have yet to finalize contract with K-Rod
|(3/3/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday the team has yet to finalize a contract with closer Francisco Rodriguez, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Rodriguez has agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract, which includes a team option for 2017.
"They're still working on finalizing the contract, and after that the (work) visa (in Venezuela)," Roenicke said. "Sometimes it's not that easy to say, 'Well, we've finished the contract,' and walk in and get the visa the next day."
Roenicke added he isn't worried about Rodriguez not getting enough work because he has had shortened springs in the past. In 2014, Rodriguez missed time during spring training because of visa issues and a foot injury.
Melvin: Failed talks to acquire Papelbon led to K-Rod contract
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said the decision to sign closer Francisco Rodriguez to a two-year contract happened because talks were going nowhere in their attempt to acquire Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon.
“We did engage them and didn’t come to a comparable deal for both sides,” Melvin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “We had a lot of conversations. It’s complicated because of next year with the $13 million (vesting option). Even if you agree to a deal, you have to go to the agent about the no-trade (clause to Milwaukee)."
Papelbon will be paid $13 million next season if he finishes 48 games in 2015.
Marlins unlikely to add reliever now
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) The Marlins are unlikely to add a reliever now that Francisco Rodriguez is off the market, according to MLB.com.
The Marlins were involved in negotiations for K-Rod through at least Wednesday, and were reportedly willing to offer $10 million over two years. The club has been looking for a veteran reliever for some time, but may pass now that Rodriguez has signed with the Brewers.
Both Rafael Soriano and Phil Coke have been connected to Miami, but the team would likely only sign those players to minor-league contracts.
K-Rod agrees to two-year deal with Brewers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez has agreed to a two-year deal with the Brewers, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The deal includes a team option for a third year, but the financial terms are not yet known.
The 33-year-old Rodriguez is reunited with the Brewers after closing out 44 games for them in 2014. He also earned his fifth All-Star appearance last season, while going 5-5 with a 3.04 ERA. In four seasons with Milwaukee, Rodriguez is 12-13 with a 3.11 ERA and 57 saves.
|2014 summary: Though he didn't enter 2014 as the Brewers closer -- a role he hadn't held full-time since 2011 with the Mets -- Francisco Rodriguez immediately claimed the role from a struggling (and ultimately injured) Jim Henderson and, at least for the first half, looked like the guy who piled up a record 62 saves for the Angels in 2008, compiling a 1.95 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings over his first 32 appearances. But while he maintained a high save rate throughout, he had a 4.04 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 9.3 strikeouts per nine innings over his final 37 appearances, making him not the Brewers' first choice to hold the role in 2015.|
Playing time status: But after exploring the trade market, they ultimately decided he was the most logical choice, signing him to a two-year deal in late February. Setup man Jonathan Broxton has closing experience, though, if Rodriguez falters out of the gate.
2015 outlook: Even though Rodriguez will be closing again in 2015, he's not worth drafting where he finished among relievers in 2014, which is fourth in Head-to-Head leagues and fifth in Rotisserie. Obviously, his circumstances contributed more to that finish than his actual abilities. But he is worth drafting, probably as your second reliever, in the middle-to-late rounds.
