PHOENIX (AP) Former Arizona manager Bob Brenly rejoined the Diamondbacks as a television analyst Thursday, a day after he left the Chicago Cubs' broadcast crew.

The Diamondbacks also hired Steve Berthiaume to handle play-by-play duties on Fox Sports Arizona.

They replaced analyst Mark Grace and play-by-play broadcaster Daron Sutton.

Grace left voluntarily in August after his second drunken driving arrest in 15 months. Sutton was suspended on June 30 for unspecified ``philosophical differences.''

The 58-year-old Brenly led Arizona to the 2001 World Series title. He was a broadcaster with the team from 1998-2000 and the manager from 2001-04. He spent the last eight seasons as a Cubs broadcaster.

Berthiaume is leaving ESPN, where he was a ``Baseball Tonight'' and ``SportsCenter'' host.

Greg Schulte is returning to his radio position after finishing the season on TV in place of Sutton.
