Today is shaping up to be another uninspiring day in the world of Angels new, but we do have something to talk about. According to Alden Gonzalez and Spencer Fordin, the team has agreed to a minor league contract with Francisco Rodriguez. Yes, we’re talking about the Francisco Rodriguez made famous by his string of mediocre relief appearances for the Halos in 2010.
Rodriguez struggled in 2011, plagued by shoulder issues throughout the season. He’s a solid up-and-down middle relief candidate for the team next season if he can stay healthy. His value is minimal even if he stays healthy, but he is a guy with a place on a 25-man roster somewhere.
