The Chunichi Dragons announced Saturday that they have agreed to
contract terms on a one-year deal with 27-year-old right-hander Brad
Bergesen, who was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday.

Over four major league seasons, Bergesen is 19-25 with a 4.61
ERA in 424 innings. He was primarily a starter in his first two
seasons with the Baltimore Orioles and went 2-1 with a 3.64 ERA in 19

His deal with the Nagoya-based Central League club is estimated
at $750,000 with additional performance-based incentives and a
$150,000 signing bonus.
