Brewers could be interested in K-Rod reunion
Brewers owner Mark Attanasio has reportedly had talks with Francisco Rodriguez’s agent, Scott Boras, about a potential return to Milwaukee, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
This report comes a day after Attanasio said he would be “very surprised” if the Brewers did not make another signing before Spring Training. The Brewers had been mentioned in potential trade talks involving the Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon, but those talks seem to have died down in recent days.
As it stands now, the Brewers are limited to Jonathan Broxton when it comes to potential closer options. Rodriguez, meanwhile, is coming off an impressive 2014 campaign in which he locked down 44 saves, while racking up a respectable 3.04 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over 69 appearances.
The market for Rodriguez has been rather quiet this offseason, so a return to the Brewers could end up being the best option for both sides.
