The Yomiuri Giants said Monday they have signed their former
second baseman Edgar Gonzalez through the end of the season.

The 33-year-old Gonzalez, who will make 20 million yen in
salary, previously played for Yomiuri in 2010 mainly as a second
baseman. He batted .263 with 12 home runs and 44 RBIs in 100 games
that season.

Gonzalez, the older brother of the Boston Red Sox's All-Star
first baseman Adrian, had been playing for the Chicago Cubs' Triple-A
Iowa this year.
