Giants, Ramon Ortiz Agree To Terms

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants signed right-hander Ramon Ortiz to a minor league contract.

Ortiz will be invited to spring training.  The 35-year-old spent last season in Japan, going 4-7 with a 5.82 ERA in 17 starts.  Schulman assumes that he’ll start the ’09 season with the club’s Triple-A affiliate in Fresno and will only be brought up if the Giants need a spot starter.
