The Winnipeg Goldeyes added two more players to their 2011 roster on Wednesday.

The Fish signed left-handed pitcher Kevin Light and outfielder Victor Ferrante.

Light, 23, spent the last season with the Kansas City T-Bones, where Goldeyes manager Rick Forney had his eye on him.

“I was a big fan of his last year working out of the T-Bones bullpen,” Forney said in a release. “Along with our two lefties in the bullpen, Zach Baldwin and Ian Thomas, I thought Kevin Light was one of the top three left-handed relievers in the league.”

Ferrante, 26, comes from the Tucson Toros of the Golden Baseball League, where he suffered a season-ending broken foot injury in 2010. He batted .284 in 2009 with the Schaumburg Flyers of the Northern League.

The Goldeyes made a third player transaction Wednesday, trading left-handed pitcher Antony Bello to the Florence Freedom of the Frontier League for a player to be named later.
