MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers signed free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez to a one-year contract.

Rodriguez is 41-36 with a 2.70 ERA and 304 saves in 730 relief appearances with the Angels, Mets, Brewers and Orioles.

Rodriguez's 62 saves with the Angels in 2008 are a single-season record and his 304 career saves are tied for 21st all-time with Jeff Montgomery.

To make room for Rodriguez on the 40-man roster, the Brewers designated right-handed pitcher Donovan Hand for assignment.
