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.

POCKETS FULL FOR POSEY
Brian Sabean said he wanted Buster Posey to be a Giant for life, and that could very well be the case with the news that they have signed the reigning NL MVP to a massive deal.
Buster Posey is the San Francisco Giants' new franchise man.
The Giants rewarded NL MVP and batting champion with a $167 million, nine-year contract Friday, a deal that includes a club option for 2022 that could raise the value to $186 million over a decade.

After leading their teams to last year's World Series, Justin Verlander and Buster Posey cashed in just hours apart Friday.
The All-Star pitcher and MVP catcher were guaranteed nearly $350 million in contracts by the Tigers and Giants, a sure sign of the baseball times: Teams are awash with revenue from television and high-priced tickets.
