RP Francisco Rodriguez makes spring debut for Brewers
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/22/15) Francisco Rodriguez made his spring debut for the Brewers on Sunday, pitching one inning in his team's loss to the White Sox.
Rodriguez, who was delayed at arriving to camp due to visa issues, pitched the sixth inning and gave up three hits and an earned run, while striking out two hitters.
Rodriguez told MLB.com that he hoped to pitch five or six innings before Opening Day, but that he considered his debut a success.
"Mission accomplished," Rodriguez said. "That's the first one out of the way, now I've just got to ramp it up and make sure to be ready for April 6."

Brewers make Francisco Rodriguez signing official
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) The Brewers announced the signing of Francisco Rodriguez, making the two-year, $13 million contract official on Saturday.
Rodriguez reported to Brewers' camp on Friday and had to pass a physical before the deal could be finalized.
It's the fourth stint with the Brewers for K-Rod, who told the Journal Sentinel that he passed up more lucrative offers from other teams, because the team "feels like home".
Francisco Rodriguez expected at Brewers camp Friday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/12/15) Relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez is expected to arrive at Brewers camp Friday, and once he passes a physical, his two-year, $13 million deal will kick in, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The 33-year-old was delayed in receiving his work visa from Venezuela, but he will be back in action with the Brewers, for whom he saved 44 games while posting a 3.04 ERA and 73:18 K:BB ratio in 68 innings last season.
|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.
