The Softbank Hawks of the Japanese Pacific League say they have signed former Chicago Cubs infielder Bryan LaHair to a two-year, $4.5 million contract. LeHair, who was named to the National League All-Star team last season, batted .286 with 14 home runs and 30 RBIs before the All-Star break but fell to .202 with two home runs and 10 RBIs after it. After losing the first base job to top prospect Anthony Rizzo in June, LeHair was a bench player for the remainder of the season. An outstanding run producer in six Triple-A seasons through 2011, LaHair is being looked at as a first baseman and designated hitter for the Hawks, who finished third in the Pacific League following back-to-back pennants in 2010 and 2011.
