Yomiuri Giants Sign Masahide Kobayashi

The Yomiuri Giants signed reliever Masahide Kobayashi, according to Kyodo News.  The 35-year-old righty was released by the Indians in July.

I was in favor of Kobayashi's two-year, $6.25MM deal in November of 2007.  However, he posted a 5.10 ERA with plenty of hits and home runs over his 65.3 inning MLB career.
