Kroon to return to Giants

by John E. Gibson (Nov 11, 2009)

Yomiuri Giants closer Marc Kroon will return to the 2009 Japan Series champions next season, sources said Tuesday.

Kroon, 36, signed a one-year deal to join the Giants in 2008. But his contract included an option that automatically kicked in to extend his stay each year up to a maximum of three years dependent on his performances.

Meanwhile, Nippon Ham Fighters ace Yu Darvish has a stress fracture in his pitching hand, it was announced on Tuesday.

The right-hander's injury was discovered at the base of the middle knuckle in his index finger at a hospital in Sapporo on Monday.
