The Yomiuri Giants announced Thursday they will send veteran left-hander Tetsuya Utsumi to the Seibu Lions in compensation for their recent acquisition of free agent catcher Ginjiro Sumitani.

The 36-year-old Utsumi joined the Giants from the Tokyo Gas corporate league team in 2004 and was named Opening Day starter for the first time in 2007. He led the Central League in wins in 2011 and 2012.
