Brewers add right-hander David Phelps to bullpen

Free-agent reliever David Phelps has signed a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The deal, which was officially announced Thursday, includes a club option for 2021.

Phelps, 33, ended last season with the Chicago Cubs, who acquired him in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays before the trade deadline.

Between the two teams, the right-hander made 41 appearances, going 2-1 with a save and a 3.41 ERA. The seven-year veteran is 32-34 with six saves and a 3.86 ERA in his career.

The Brewers' addition of a reliever from the Cubs comes after Chicago signed a former Brewers reliever, adding Jeremy Jeffress on a one-year deal.

The Brewers designated right-hander Deolis Guerra for assignment. The 30-year-old Guerra pitched in one game for Milwaukee last season, and previously played for the Pittsburgh and the Angels.
