The Lotte Marines announced Thursday that they have re-signed
right-hander Seth Greisinger to a two-year contract worth $2 million.

The 37-year-old right-hander, who led the Central League in wins
in 2007 and 2008, threw 168-2/3 innings this year in his first
Pacific League season with the Marines. Greisinger previously pitched
for the Yakult Swallows, in 2007, and Yomiuri Giants, who released
him last year.

After going 1-7 over his final two seasons with Yomiuri,
Greisinger joined the Marines in January on a one-year, $400,000 deal.

"This is great," said the club's managing director, Nobuhira
Hayashi. "For the time being this completes our work."

The Marines have re-signed pitchers Carlos Rosa and Wil Ledezma,
and first baseman Josh Whitesell. The club has also added veteran
right-hander Dicky Gonzalez, who also began his Japan career with
Yakult and joined the Marines after being released by Yomiuri.
