AP source: Francisco Rodriguez returns to Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Francisco Rodriguez will be jogging out of the bullpen again for the Milwaukee Brewers.

A person familiar with the agreement tells The Associated Press that the veteran closer reached a two-year, $13 million deal with the Brewers on Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The 33-year-old reliever revived his career last season after going 44 of 49 in save opportunities.

He has signed with the Brewers for a fourth straight year, though this time he has a multi-year deal. The move solidifies a bullpen in which presumed closer Jonathan Broxton figures to move back into a setup role to make room for Rodriguez, who has 348 career saves.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel first reported terms of the deal.
