Francisco Rodriguez is holding out for a two-year contract

Francisco Rodriguez remaining unsigned late in an offseason is nothing new, but this time around the longtime closer is still on the market because he’s holding out for a two-year offer from someone.

That’s according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, who also says re-signing with the Brewers remains a possibility for Rodriguez after he spent parts of the past four seasons in Milwaukee.

Overall in various stints for the Brewers he logged 194 innings with a 3.11 ERA and 204 strikeouts, including 44 saves last season at age 32. Based on performance alone Rodriguez seemingly should have been able to snag a two-year deal, but his market has been less than the performance alone would have suggested for years now.
