The Milwaukee Brewers have signed free-agent relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez to a two-year contract.  It’s Rodriguez’s fourth stint with the Brewers.

Rodriguez saved 44 games for the Brewers last season, replacing Jim Henderson as the team’s closer the day before the season opener.  He finished 5-5 with a 3.04 ERA.

It’s not known what role Rodriguez will serve with Jonathan Broxton on the roster as well.

The two-year deal includes a team option for a third-year.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the deal will pay Rodriguez $3 million the first year and $6 million in year number two.
