The Brewers are calling on a former high-profile closer to shore up their leaking bullpen. The team announced the signing of right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez to a minor league deal.

Rodriguez could provide the Brewers another much needed late-inning option from the bullpen. The Brewers set-up and closer duties have been in flux with John Axford struggling and Jim Henderson trying to stabilize late-inning situations.

Rodriguez last pitched for the Brewers in the 2012 season, posting  a 3.65 ERA with just three saves in a season-and-a-half until the team let him leave via free agency. He came to the Brewers via a trade with the Mets during the 2011 season.
