SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Giants have re-signed reliever Ramon Ramirez to a contract with Triple-A Fresno.
The Giants said Ramirez will be with the team for the Bay Bridge Series against the Oakland Athletics beginning Thursday night in San Francisco. He will report to Fresno following the three exhibitions.
The Giants had released Ramirez last week. He helped San Francisco to the 2010 World Series title before being traded along with Andres Torres to the New York Mets for Angel Pagan ahead of the 2012 season.
Ramirez had a 4.24 ERA in 63 2-3 innings of relief for the Mets last year. He struck out 52 batters and walked 35.
