The Winnipeg Goldeyes have inked their first player of the 2014 season.
Right-handed pitcher Jason Jarvis will continue playing for the Fish next year after being acquired from the Sioux City Explorers late last season.
The 26-year-old went 2-1 with a 2.19 ERA in four starts with the Goldeyes and threw a complete-game shutout August 22 at St. Paul. Three of his four starts were quality starts.
“In the short period of time he spent with us, he was very impressive,” manager Rick Forney said. “He’s what you look for in a starting pitcher in independent baseball. He is a durable innings-eater. He really gave us an opportunity at the end of the season to stay relevant in the playoff race. Although we came up short, he’s one of the many pieces I feel that can help us achieve a title in 2014.”
