Description: Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez's resurgence continued Saturday night.
Insight: He has been amazing all season, and that continued against the Pirates, as Rodriguez locked down his 43rd save. The 3.09 ERA is nothing to cry home about, as a closer, but in no way is it terrible.
 
9/17/2014 12:18:00 AM
Description: Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez recorded his 42nd save of the year, shutting down the Cardinals in the bottom of the 12th to hold onto a 3-2 victory.
Insight: K-Rod nearly tossed up a game-tying home run to Johnny Peralta, but the fly ball died at the warning track and was caught. Rodriguez has had his struggles this year, but he is third in the National League in saves and has converted 42 out of 47 opportuntities.
 
Hot4/19/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez hs six saves, 13 Ks and two walks in nine innings this season.
Insight: K-Rod has allowed just three hits and zero runs. Manager Ron Roenicke turned to him to close after Jim Henderson struggled in spring training, but he said he planned to go back to Henderson once he got back on track. Henderson has 10 Ks and a 3.86 ERA in seven innings, but Rodriguez has been flawless and hasn't given Roenicke a chance to take him out of the role.
 
3/31/2014 6:07:00 PM
Description: According to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said after Monday's season opener that Francisco Rodriguez will close for now.
Insight: Roenicke went to K-Rod for the save Monday. He said he wants to give Jim Henderson time to get his stuff back after Henderson allowed six earned runs and walked five in nine innings this spring.
 
3/13/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez stepped on a cactus while playing with his son on Tuesday night and won't make his spring debut until next week, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: K-Rod was still getting spines removed from his foot Thursday. He arrived late to camp because of visa issues. He'll serve as a setup man to Jim Henderson this season.
 
2/7/2014 9:19:00 PM
Description: Francisco Rodriguez is returning to the Brewers on a one-year contract.
Insight: K-Rod will earn $3.25 million in 2014. Rodriguez saved ten games for the Brewers last season before being acquired by Baltimore just before the trade deadline. Jim Henderson will be first in line for saves so Rodriguez isn't a must-own.
 
8/17/2013 9:19:00 AM
Description: Orioles reliever Francisco Rodriguez left Friday's game with a strained right groin.
Insight: Rodriguez has pitched decently this season going 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP (10 saves with Milwaukee). He pitches in a setup role with the O's, so unless the situation changes his fantasy value is limited.
 
7/23/2013 9:02:00 PM
Description: The Orioles have acquired Francisco Rodriguez from the Brewers for a minor leaguer.
Insight: Rodriguez was picked up on a minor league deal earlier this season and ended up going 1-1 with a 1.09 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 10 saves in 10 chances over 24 2/3 innings with the Brewers. He'll pitch in a setup role with the O's, so he loses his fantasy value. Jim Henderson will step back into the closer role.
 
7/20/2013 4:26:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Buster Olney, Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez will be the Tigers' primary target at this year's trade deadline.
Insight: The Tigers are hoping to put some distance between themselves and the second-place Indians and strengthening the team's bullpen could be the key to making that happen. K-Rod has been sensational this season, converting all ten of his save chances with a 1.14 ERA in 23 2/3 innings. If K-Rod is dealt, Jim Henderson would take over as the closer for Milwaukee.
 
7/3/2013 9:37:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee reliever Francisco Rodriguez picked up his seventh save of the season Wednesday against the Nats.
Insight: Rodriguez has received more save chances due to Jim Henderson's struggles since returning from the DL. Henderson blew three saves and posted a 4.50 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP in June.
 
6/22/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee reliever Francisco Rodriguez notched his 300th career save Saturday against the Braves.
Insight: He's the 25th pitcher in major league history to reach that milestone. Rodriguez has been outstanding this year, collecting a 0.59 ERA in 16 appearances. He's a perfect 6-for-6 in save opportunities.
 
6/1/2013 9:35:00 PM
Description: Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez allowed three hits, walked a batter and gave up one run, but he induced a groundout with two runners on in the ninth to close out a 4-3 win.
Insight: Rodriguez should have blown the save, but the second base umpire did not see Jean Segura drop the ball on a pickoff of Kyle Kendrick. Cesar Hernandez followed with a double with nobody on base. Rodriguez has three saves so far since taking over for the injured Jim Henderson, but he's no sure thing in the ninth inning.
 
5/26/2013 11:04:00 AM
Description: It looks like the Brewers are going to use Francisco Rodriguez in the closer's role while Jim Henderson is out with a hamstring injury. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: John Axford would seem like the logical choice but manager Ron Roenicke is hesitant to remove him from his role as the team's setup man. Rodriguez has tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings since his promotion from Triple-A.
 
5/15/2013 5:03:00 PM
Description: The Brewers will call up reliever Francisco Rodriguez, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
Insight: The Brewers signed him to a 30-day minor league contract on April 17 and had 30 days to promote him or release him. Jim Henderson is 7-for-7 in save chances and has a 1.06 ERA, so Rodriguez will work in middle relief.
 
5/7/2013 7:30:00 PM
Description: Francisco Rodriguez will be active with Milwaukee's Class-A Advanced team Tuesday night.
Insight: The Brewers signed him to a 30-day minor league contract on April 17, and will either have to release him or add him to the major league roster when the 30 days are up. He's expected to pitch with Class-A Advanced Brevard County on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday before joining Triple-A Nashville. Jim Henderson currently has six saves and a 1.38 ERA as the Brewers closer, so Rodriguez isn't likely to have immediate fantasy value.
 
5/2/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Francisco Rodriguez has secured his work visa and will report to a Brewers minor league affiliate next week, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.
Insight: The Brewers signed him to a 30-day minor league contract on April 17, and will either have to release him or add him to the major league roster when the 30 days are up. He has been pitching in extended spring training games while waiting for his work visa. Jim Henderson has six saves and a 0.75 ERA since taking over the closer role from John Axford, so Rodriguez won't have fantasy value unless Henderson implodes.
 
4/17/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: The Brewers have indeed re-signed veteran relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez.
Insight: He'll start out in extended spring training and work his way up from there. Given how shaky Milwaukee's pen has been this season it's very possible that Rodriguez could close for the Brewers at some point. K-Rod will definitely be worth monitoring in fantasy leagues.
 
4/17/2013 6:11:00 PM
Description: According to MLBlogs.com, the Brewers are close to re-signing relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez.
Insight: Milwaukee's bullpen has been a disaster this season and the ninth inning role could be up for grabs if Jim Henderson (1-0, 1.50 ERA) and John Axford (0-2, 15.19) can't get it together soon. It's a long shot but there's still a chance K-Rod could close out games for the Brewers at some point in 2013.
 
10/13/2012 6:16:00 PM
Description: CBS 58 is reporting that Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez was arrested last month for an incident involving domestic violence.
Insight: Rodriguez was arrested for assault two years ago so this isn't his first run-in with the law. If charges are filed, the 30-year-old could have trouble finding a job in free agency later this offseason.
 
Cold7/29/2012 7:05:00 PM
Description: Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez contributed to another meltdown Sunday against the Nationals. Rodriguez entered with a 5-2 lead in the eighth inning but could only get one out while allowing three earned runs.
Insight: K-Rod has allowed nine runs on 10 hits and eight walks in 3 2/3 innings since he was handed Milwaukee's closer role last week. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has already removed the right-hander from that role but he may find himself designated for assignment if he doesn't improve in the eighth. The reliever can be dropped in all fantasy leagues.
