Winnipeg Goldeyes LogoThe Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed left-handed pitcher Brendan Lafferty for the 2015 American Association season.

The 28-year-old set a Goldeyes record by appearing in 55 games out of the bullpen last season, which bested his own record from the 2013 campaign. He finished last summer with a 0-3 record, career-low 2.66 ERA and a career-high six saves.

“We’re thrilled to have him back in our bullpen,” manager Rick Forney said in a statement over the weekend. “His durability and reliability are his best strengths. Obviously during the last couple of years he’s set some Goldeyes records. He makes himself available to the club on a regular basis and can fill many roles in the bullpen.”

The Goldeyes now have two pitchers and one position player signed for the 2015 season.
