MIAMI -- A former teammate of Marlins manager Mike Redmond is on the verge of being back in the organization.

Brad Penny, a former All-Star and member of the 2003 World Series champion Marlins, has reached agreement on a Minor League contract, pending physical.

The 36-year-old was with the Marlins from 2000-04, and he won two games in the '03 World Series.

Penny last pitched in the big leagues in 2012 with the Giants, where he appeared in 22 games as a reliever.

Penny has a 119-100 career with a 4.26 ERA.

The right-hander from Oklahoma was an All-Star with the Dodgers in 2006-07.
