   MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Reliever Matt Albers has finalized a $5 million, two-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, who adding a veteran right-hander to help set up for All-Star closer Corey Knebel.

   The 35-year old is coming off a standout season in Washington, where he was a career-best 7-2 with a 1.62 ERA in 63 games.

   Albers will make $2.5 million in each of the next two seasons. The deal announced Tuesday includes $1 million annually in performance bonuses based on games pitched.
