ATLANTA, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- The Atlanta Braves have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with catcher Eddie Perez, who played in Atlanta from 1995-2001.

The MVP in the 1999 National League Championship Series batted .271 in 107 games last season for the Milwaukee Brewers with career highs in hits (95), home runs (11), and RBI (45).

After missing most of the 2000 and 2001 seasons with a torn rotator cuff, Perez spent the 2002 campaign with the Cleveland Indians.

In the 1999 NLCS, he batted .500 with two homers and five RBI.

Originally signed by the Braves as an undrafted free agent in 1986, Perez is a career .257 hitter with 35 homers and 153 RBI in an eight-year career.
