|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Brewers' Francisco Rodriguez: 'I'm ready to go'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez had just three weeks to prepare for the season after signing late and dealing with visa issues, but he indicated this weekend that he's all set for the regular season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
"I'm ready to go," Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez typically has needed just three weeks of preparation to geat ready for each season.
"He doesn't get a lot of outings in any spring training," manager Ron Roenicke said. "I think that's why he feels good going into the season."
Rodriguez, who made just five spring appearances, focused on his changeup during the spring season and said that it and his curveball "have been pretty good."
The closer racked up 44 saves in 2014, his most since delivering an MLB-record 62 saves with the Angels in 2008, and posted a 3.04 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 73:18 K:BB ratio in 68 innings.
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."

Francisco Rodriguez could make spring appearance on Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters on Friday that closer Francisco Rodriguez could make his first Cactus League appearance this weekend, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Rodriguez officially signed a two-year, $13 million contract with Milwaukee on Saturday. He converted 44 saves to go along with 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.
