The Brewers signed Chris Perez to a minor league deal a month or so ago. On Sunday they told him he wouldn't be making the major league team and gave him the choice to accept assignment to AAA or ask for his release. He chose the latter in hopes of latching on somewhere else on a major league deal. Clearly that was not possible and the Brewers welcomed him back on a minor league deal. Presumably this is the same as the original deal, though I don't know if the $100,000 retention bonus he might have been due is still in play.
