Tigers acquired RHP Francisco Rodriguez from the Brewers for INF Javier Betancourt and a player to be named later.
And just like that, the Tigers have found their closer. Rodriguez is still going strong despite an average fastball velocity around 90 mph, posting a 2.21 ERA and 62/11 K/BB ratio over 57 innings this past season. The Tigers are picking up the tab on his remaining contract, which includes a $7.5 million salary (with $2 million deferred until 2018) for 2016 and a $6 million club option (or a $2 million buyout) for 2017. K-Rod, who will be 34 next season, currently ranks seventh on the all-time list with 386 saves. Wed, Nov 18, 2015 12:16:00 PM
