The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed right-handed Canadian pitcher Kyle Lotzkar to their roster.

The Delta, B.C. native was drafted in the first round (53rd overall) by the Cincinnati Reds in 2007 and attended Major League spring training with the Reds in both 2012 and 2013.

“We’re hoping his experience will help add quality depth to the pitching staff,” Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney said.

Lotzkar has 20 wins, 23 losses and two saves with a 4.70 ERA in 147 career games — 73 of which he started — in eight professional seasons.

In separate transactions, the Goldeyes have claimed left-handed pitchers Ethan Carnes and Bennett Parry off waivers from the Texas AirHogs and Lincoln Saltdogs respectively.
