TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Blue Jays hired John Gibbons as their manager for a second time.

The 50-year-old Gibbons returns to the club where he served as manager from 2004-2008. He had a 305-305 record and is the 3rd winningest manager in franchise history.

Gibbons most recently managed the San Antonio Missions of the Texas League (AA) in the San Diego Padres organization last season. He also had three seasons as the Kansas City Royals bench coach.

Gibbons joined the Blue Jays coaching staff in 2002 as a bullpen catcher and was promoted midseason to first base coach. He served in that capacity until replacing Carlos Tosca in August 2004.

Before joining the Blue Jays the first time, Gibbons spent 11 seasons working with the New York Mets.

He joins Cito Gaston as managers serving two stints with the Blue Jays.
