The Milwaukee Brewers declined the options for pitcher Francisco Rodriguez and shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt on Sunday, making both players free agents.
Francisco Rodriguez (K-Rod), who was acquired on July 12 of last season in a trade from the New York Mets, had a mutual option worth $17.5 million dollars for next season but will instead receive a $4 million buyout.
The major-league record holder for saves in a single season (62) had a 6-2 record with a 2.64 ERA and 23 saves last season, serving mainly as an eighth- inning man with Milwaukee.
The Mets in need of a closer and can get K-Rod back if it's a reasonable price, but I don't think playing with Scott Boras is on the Mets agenda this off-season.. Plus Mr. Rodriguez can punch his in-laws in another state. LOL!!!
