Francisco Rodriguez has secured a work visa and is expected to report to High-A Brevard County next week.

K-Rod signed a minor league deal with Milwaukee last month and has been pitching in extended spring training while awaiting his visa. He's expected to spend around 3-5 days in High-A before making his way to Triple-A Nashville. The Brewers have until mid-May to decide whether to call him up to the major league bullpen or offer him his release. The veteran reliever will make $2 million if he's added to the major league roster.
