The Winnipeg Goldeyes have brought back infielder/outfielder Josh Mazzola for the 2013 season.
The 26-year-old played in 98 games for the Goldeyes last season, where he finished tied for third in the American Association with 18 home runs and fifth in slugging percentage at .541, while hitting a respectable .308.
“He’s a really good core outfielder and a really good first baseman,” manager Rick Forney said. “I imagine he will play both positions again next year. For me, that’s what makes him so valuable. He’s a good offensive player, that’s obvious, but his ability on the defensive side to be a game changer is just as important to me.”
Mazzola joins infielder Amos Ramon as the two players that have been signed for next year.
