The Orioles today announced that they have acquired RHP FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for minor league INF NICK DELMONICO.

Rodriguez, 31, is 1-1 with 10 saves, a 1.09 ERA (24.2IP, 3ER), 26 strikeouts and nine walks in 25 appearances for Milwaukee this season. He has recorded double-digit saves in nine of the last 10 seasons, including a major league record 62 in 2008 with the Los Angeles Angels. His 304 career saves are third most among active players and 21st most all-time.

A 6th round draft pick by the Orioles in the 2011 First Year Player Draft out of Farragut High School (TN), Delmonico, 20, batted .244/.351/.471 in 60 games with Class-A Frederick this season after hitting .249/.351/.411 in 95 games for Class-A Delmarva in 2012.

To make room for Rodriguez on the 40-man roster, OF NOLAN REIMOLD has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
