Free agent pitcher David Phelps, Brewers reach 1-year deal

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have signed free agent pitcher David Phelps to a one-year contract with a club option for 2021.

The 33-year-old right-hander was a combined 2-1 with one save and a 3.41 ERA in 41 games for Toronto and Cubs last season.

Phelps missed the 2018 season because of Tommy John surgery.

Phelps is 32-34 with six saves and a 3.86 ERA in seven seasons with the New York Yankees, Miami, Seattle, Toronto and the Cubs.

The Brewers designated right-hander Deolis Guerra for assignment on Thursday.

The 30-year-old Guerra pitched in one game for Milwaukee last season.
