Rodriguez Signed!

Texas signed pitcher WILFREDO RODRIGUEZ to a minor-league deal.

Oh, that Rodriguez.

Rodriguez signed with Houston as a 17-year-old, tore up two levels of A ball in 1998-1999, struggled in AA in 2000, and received a cup of coffee in the Majors. Rodriguez, an apparent trivia buff, made the most of his brief tenure by allowing Barry Bonds his 70th homer of the season.

Rodriguez missed 2002-2003 with Tommy John surgery and pitched poorly in the Montreal system last year. The Fort Worth Startlegram reports evidence of quality pitching in the winter league.
