Right-hander Brandon Dickson has re-signed for another two seasons with the Orix Buffaloes, the Pacific League club announced Saturday.

Dickson has a 9-9 record and a 2.48 ERA in 20 games this season, his third in Nippon Professional Baseball. The 1.95-cm 30-year-old started on Opening Day for Orix after ace Chihiro Kaneko was unavailable and won his first pitcher of the month award in May. He has a career record of 26-27 with a 2.89 ERA.

His contract is reported to be for ¥180 million per year.
