MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports that the Brewers are close to re-signing reliever Francisco Rodriguez.

It will be a minor league contract if K-Rod passes his physical. The 31-year-old right-hander struggled to attract interest this offseason, but the Brewers are now desperate for bullpen help. Rodriguez could eventually become a ninth-inning option for Milwaukee if Jim Henderson doesn't pan out and John Axford can't get right.
