The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed right-handed pitcher Matt Rusch for the 2013 season.
The 29-year-old Schenectady, N.Y. native led all American Association pitchers last season with a 2.40 ERA. In 21 starts, the native of Schenectady, N.Y., who now resides in Winnipeg, posted a 10-4 record and struck out a league-leading 113 opposing hitters in 139 innings of work.
“We are thrilled to have him coming back and he’s a very talented guy,” manager Rick Forney said. “He didn’t lead the league in pitching last year by accident. He has good fastball command and a solid approach.”
The Goldeyes now have eight players signed for the 2013 season, including six pitchers and two position players.
