The Winnipeg Goldeyes signed veteran left-handed pitcher Chris Salamida over the weekend.
Salamida returns to the Goldeyes after retiring in the off-season. The 29-year-old helped the Fish win the American Association championship last season after going 5-7 with a 3.77 ERA in the regular season and 1-0 with a 4.77 ERA in two starts in the playoffs.
“Chris is one of the best left-handed starting pitchers in the league,” manager Rick Forney said. “He logs a lot of innings and is very dependable. We are excited to have him back in our rotation.”
The Goldeyes also announced they have placed left-handed Mark Hardy on the inactive list, retroactive to July 20.
In other Goldeyes news, outfielder Fehlandt Lentini became the all-time leader among independent baseball players in stolen bases when he stole third base in the bottom of the second inning in Sunday’s game against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles.
