MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have signed reliever A.J. Murray to a minor-league contract.

Tuesday's deal with the 27-year-old left-hander includes an invitation to major league camp when spring training starts.

Murray has been in the Texas Rangers organization since 2001. He pitched at Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Oklahoma City last year and combined to finish 4-2 with a 2.87 ERA and one save in 41 appearances.

Murray didn't appear in the majors last year, but made 16 major league appearances over 2007-08 with the Rangers, going 2-2 with a 4.29 ERA.
