|Francisco Rodriguez serves solo homer in spring debut |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/15/14) Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez (foot) made his debut on Saturday against the Reds in Cactus League action.
Rodriguez, who stepped on a catcus a few days ago, pitched an inning of work, but allowed a solo home run to Neftali Soto in the fifth. He allowed one run on one hit and no walks over that span.

(3/14/14) Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez is still having issues with his injured foot, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Rodriguez stepped on a cactus a few days ago, and tried to play catch Thursday. He didn't last long during that process, and things don't look good Friday. Rodriguez posted a 2.70 ERA in 46 2/3 innings last year.

(3/13/14) Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez played catch on Thirsday, "but couldn't get out there real long," manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com.
"I don't know about tomorrow, either. We'll see what he's like," Roenicke said.
Rodriguez stepped barefoot on a cactus and was forced to have the spines extracted from his foot. He was ruled out indefinitely before he got a chance to make his spring debut.

(3/13/14) Perhaps the first cactus-related injury in major league baseball history will keep Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez sidelined indefinitely, per the Milwaukee Journal. It is unknown when he will return.

|Cactus incident shouldn't sideline Francisco Rodriguez for long |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez's spring debut is temporarily on hold after he stepped barefoot on a cactus, per MLB.com. Rodriguez was in the trainer's room Wednesday having spines pulled from his foot.
"He took out a lot of the thorns, but there’s some more in there," Roenicke said. "I don’t think it’s that big of a setback, but I imagine he’s pretty sore today. I don’t know if you guys have stepped on one, but you know how little some of the [spines] are, and they’re in there for a while? With Frankie, he may some in today and say, ‘I’m pitching.’ I don’t know.'"
Roenicke doesn't believe Rodriguez's latest setback will keep him from being ready for the start of the season.
"It’ll be tough to keep him back, the way he is," Roenicke said. "Like I said, he may end up pitching [on Thursday as scheduled]. It could happen. I just have to talk to him and see how he’s doing."
|Francisco Rodriguez had his first double-digit save season (10) since 2011 last year, finishing with a 2.70 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, striking out 54 batters in 46 2/3 innings. Rodriguez, 32, saw a significant drop-off after being traded from the Brewers (where he was closing games) to the Orioles (where he was not). His ERA went from 1.09 in 25 games with Milwaukee to 4.50 in 23 with Baltimore. But the stint with the Brewers proved that Rodriguez could be an effective closer again in the majors, after a 2010 brawl with his father-in-law outside the Mets clubhouse set off a series of events that had many forgetting just how good he could be when dialed in. In fact, Rodriguez didn't sign with the Brewers last season until mid-April. Rodriguez may not get the first crack at saving games this season, but he could easily slide into the mix thanks to injury, performance, or a trade. He's worth a gamble in 15-team mixed Roto leagues and single-league formats.
