Goldeyes Acquire Rights to Florida Pitcher

By Brian Schultz

The Winnipeg Goldeyes have traded the playing rights of infielder Brian Myrow to the Grand Prairie AirHogs in exchange for the playing rights of Miami pitcher Craig James.

James, 28, played in two games for the AirHogs last season, pitching two innings with a 4.50 ERA. He also played two games for Chico in the North American League and didn’t allow an earned run through three innings.

James still needs to be signed to a contract for the 2012 season.

Myrow, 35, leaves Winnipeg for the second time after coming to the city in 1999 as a rookie out of Louisiana Tech. His contract was purchased by the New York Yankees in 2001 and reached the Major Leagues with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005. Last season with Winnipeg he hit .319 with 11 home runs and 70 RBI in playing all 100 games.
