SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Reliever Francisco Rodriguez has received his work visa in Venezuela and is expected in Brewers camp soon.

"I don't know the exact timing of it. He's supposed to fly in [Friday] and work out [Saturday]," manager Ron Roenicke said. "That was the plan a couple of days ago."

Rodriguez, 32, signed a one-year deal with the Brewers earlier this month. He has amassed a 3.15 ERA and 131 strikeouts in 125 2/3 innings during his 134 appearances with Milwaukee.

Roenicke said he's not sure how much Rodriguez has thrown during the offseason, but he's looking forward to getting him in camp.

"He's had a lot going on in his country," the manager said. "I don't know what he has done."
