Goldeyes Sign Two Starting Pitchers

The Winnipeg Goldeyes added a pair of starting pitchers to their roster on Wednesday.

The Fish announced the signing of left-handed pitcher Tony Butler, and have acquired left-handed pitcher Todd Privett from the Laredo Lemurs for future considerations. The team also placed left-handed pitcher Chris Zbin on the disabled list and released right-handed pitcher Brian Beuning, who will return to his job with the Minnesota State Patrol in Luverne, Minn.

Butler played for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks and Lincoln Saltdogs earlier this season. The 24-year-old is 1-2 with a 4.67 ERA in nine games.

Privett, 26, made eight starts for the Lemurs, going 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA.

The Goldeyes host the Sioux City Explorers tonight at Shaw Park.
