But apparently Rodney, who is 42, is not quite ready to hang up his cleats as he has reportedly signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals.

Prior to being designated for assignment, Rodney posted a 9.42 ERA in 17 games for the Athletics.

In his career, Rodney has pitched in 913 games and has racked up 325 saves over 17 seasons in Major League Baseball.
