The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed outfielder Ridge Carpenter for the 2012 season.
The 22-year-old from Honolulu, Hawaii batted .320 in 51 games last season with the Goldeyes, which was his first professional season. Carpenter also sealed a home run and 17 RBI, while sporting an impressive .404 on-base percentage and .464 slugging percentage. He can also play all three outfield positions.
“For him to produce like he did for us last year, he really is worthy of an opportunity of coming back and playing again,” said manager Rick Forney in a release. “He’s a dynamic player.”
The Goldeyes now have five players signed for the 2012 season, including one pitcher and four position players.
