Brewers re-sign Chris Perez to another minors deal

One day after releasing right-hander Chris Perez the Brewers have re-signed the former All-Star closer to another minor-league contract, which basically means they temporarily parted ways in order for the team to avoid paying the $100,000 veteran retention bonus attached to such deals.

Perez looks like a shell of his former self despite being just 29 years old, posting a 4.27 ERA and 39/25 K/BB ratio in 46 innings for the Dodgers as a middle reliever last season. He has a good chance of returning to the majors at some point, but it likely won’t be in a late-inning role and he’ll have to prove himself at Triple-A first.
