Eric Yardley spent parts of five seasons in San Antonio (2014-18) when the Missions were part of the San Diego Padres’ organization in the Double-A Texas League.
The right-handed relief pitcher is headed back to San Antonio as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization. The Brewers optioned Yardley to the Triple-A Missions on Thursday.
Yardley was with the Padres last season. The Brewers claimed Yardley after the Padres put him on waivers in November.
Yardley appeared in 10 games with San Diego in 2019, all in relief. He recorded a 2.31 ERA with seven strikeouts and three walks in 11 2/3 innings. He also pitched in 43 games with Triple-A El Paso last summer.
