Gallardo agreed to a contract with the Brewers on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Gallardo will return to the team that drafted him in the second round back in 2004 after the Mariners declined to exercise his $13 million club option for 2018. It's been a rough couple of years for the veteran hurler, as he's turned in a combined 5.57 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 179:121 K:BB over the past two seasons (248.2 innings) with Baltimore and Seattle, respectively. He did turn in a respectable 1.69 ERA over 16 relief innings after being shifted to the bullpen in with the Mariners, though it remains unclear how the Brewers plan to utilize him next year. Either way, given his declining strikeout rate, he doesn't figure to hold much, if any, fantasy value in 2018.
