Francisco Rodriguez was claimed on waivers, but the Brewers pulled him back
Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez was claimed on revocable waivers last week, but the Brewers pulled him back, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. As a result, Rodriguez cannot be traded until the season ends.
Rodriguez, 33, has had a great season for the Brewers, getting the save in 30 of 30 opportunities with a 2.01 ERA and a 52/9 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 innings. The right-hander is earning $3.5 million in the first year of a two-year, $13 million contract signed with the Brewers in February this year.
