NEW YORK (WFAN) – Despite being traded by New York nearly one year ago, Francisco Rodriguez has never ruled out a future reunion at Citi Field.

Apparently the Amazin’s haven’t either.

In need of bullpen help, the Mets have K-Rod on their “list of targets,” according to the New York Post.

New York traded K-Rod to Milwaukee during the All-Star break last July. The franchise couldn’t risk Rodriguez finishing 55 games, which would have triggered his $17.5 million option for 2012.

Rodriguez accepted the Brewers’ arbitration offer as a free agent this offseason and later agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal. The fourth-place Brewers will “likely” decide after the All-Star break whether to become sellers leading up to the trade deadline, the Post reported.

The 30-year-old is 1-4 with a 4.00 ERA in 39 games this season.

Rodriguez, whose infamous arrest at Citi Field in 2010 fueled headlines for months, has admitted he’d be open to donning the blue and orange again.

“Who knows,” Rodriguez said during last year’s NLCS. “In the future I could be wearing a Mets uniform.”

“I don’t have no hard feelings for nobody,” he added. “They did what they had to do. They needed to unload a lot of money and I was making too much money. But you never know what’s going to happen one year from now, two years from now.”

Though currently a setup man, K-Rod could be good insurance if Mets closer Frank Francisco — currently on the disabled list — falters during a potential playoff run.
