UNDATED (AP) — Right-hander Chase Anderson and the Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to an $11.75 million, two-year contract, a deal that includes a pair of club options and could be worth $31.85 million over four seasons.

General manager David Stearns said Thursday that the 29-year-old right-hander showed last season he has the "capability to lead the rotation."

Anderson went 12-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 25 starts this year and set career highs for wins and strikeouts (133). Eligible for salary arbitration for the first time, he earned $2.45 million after an arbitrator picked the team's offer rather than his $2.85 million request.

Anderson has gone 17-5 with a 2.69 ERA in 37 starts dating to July 25, 2016.

Milwaukee acquired Anderson from Arizona in five-player trade in January 2016.
