The Baltimore Orioles acquired reliever Francisco Rodriguez from the Milwaukee Brewers for infielder Nick Delmonico, the team announced Tuesday.

Rodriguez has appeared in 25 games for the Brewers this season and has a 1-1 record with a 1.09 ERA and 10 saves. In his 11-year career, he has a 2.64 ERA with 304 saves.

Delmonico, 20, was a sixth-round pick in 2011 and is hitting .244 in High-A Frederick this season.

The Brewers are currently 19 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central and have very little chance of making the postseason.
