The Brewers signed closer Francisco Rodriguez to a one year, $8 million deal and in effect, they avoided arbitration with the right handed pitcher. He was very good when he came over to the Brewers as a setup man for John Axford but at this point, that’s a lot of money to be paying for a reliever at all.
It’s interesting because you wonder if the Brewers actually thought he’d take arbitration. I’m sure they wanted the potential compensation but now they’re stuck paying a guy that might not have necessarily wanted to a big money deal. Melvin said a trade isn’t on the table but it’ll be interesting to see where the Brewers are at in July and to see if they change their tune.
