Nearly two weeks after agreeing to a one-year deal with reliever Mike Gonzalez the Brewers actually announced the deal, which is worth $2.25 million plus $400,000 in potential incentives.

Gonzalez joins fellow free agent signing Tom Gorzelanny as the new left-handers in the Brewers’ bullpen and threw 36 innings with a 3.03 ERA and 39/16 K/BB ratio for the Nationals last season.

Gonzalez has a long injury history and he’s 34 years old, but his 2.94 career ERA ranks second among all left-handed relievers with at least 250 appearances behind only Eric O’Flaherty (2.87).

    Good signing Melvin. Our bullpen looks to be stronger. Still worried about Axford after last season but Gonzo could step in if a similar problem happens.
