Brewers, K-Rod back together again
Updated at 3:55 p.m. CT: It’s official. The Brewers have announced K-Rod’s one-year contract and designated Donovan Hand for assignment. The story over at Brewers.com is being updated now to reflect the done deal.
Francisco Rodriguez is nearing a reunion with the Brewers — again.
A baseball source said the sides were close Friday to sealing a one-year, Major League contract that would return the veteran reliever to Milwaukee, where he has pitched parts of the past three seasons. Rodriguez would earn a $3.25 million base salary, with $550,000 more available in incentives.
The Brewers have not made any announcement. They would need to clear space on a full 40-man roster.
More to come.
