PHOENIX (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers re-signed pitcher Jordan Zimmermann to a minor-league contract one day after releasing him.

This move enables the Brewers to send the 34-year-old right-hander to their alternate site in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Zimmermann made All-Star teams with the Washington Nationals in 2013 and 2014 but has struggled with injuries the last two seasons.

He went 0-0 with a 7.94 ERA in three appearances for Detroit last year.
