The Brewers are closing in on a Minor League deal with right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who was at Maryvale Baseball Park this morning for a physical. The deal is not yet final, but Rodriguez would give the Brewers another late-inning option for a bullpen in a state of flux. Rodriguez pitched to a 3.65 ERA for Milwaukee over the past season and a half but the Brewers let him depart via free agency last winter.
