Free-agent Hirano returns to Orix

Kyodo

Keiichi Hirano, a 33-year-old free agent who plays both second base and center field, signed with his former club, the Orix Buffaloes, on Tuesday.

Hirano, a premium pre-draft signing of the Orix BlueWave in 2002, was traded to the Hanshin Tigers in December 2007. In 2011, he won the Central League's Best Nine Award at second base and a Golden Glove Award.
