SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Reliever Ramon Ramirez has agreed on a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants, returning to the team he helped to win the 2010 World Series.
Bobby Evans, vice president of baseball operations, said Tuesday the right-hander is a non-roster invitee. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Scottsdale, Ariz., next Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Ramirez, who spent 2010-11 with the Giants, went 3-4 with a 4.24 in 58 outings last season for the Mets. His ERA was 112th among 135 big league relievers with at least 50 innings pitched. Ramirez was part of the New York bullpen that had a 4.63 ERA, 29th among the 30 teams and ahead of only Milwaukee (4.66).
Also, manager Bruce Bochy said his son, Brett, has received a spring training invite with the Giants. Brett is a right-hander in the team's minor league system.
