Goldeyes Re-Sign Pitcher Matt Jackson

Winnipeg Goldeyes LogoThe Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed right-handed pitcher Matt Jackson for the 2014 season.

The 26-year-old finished 2013 in Winnipeg after being released by the San Diego Padres. In seven appearances, including six starts, with the Goldeyes, Jackson went 3-0 with a 3.70 ERA. Three of his six starts were quality starts and Winnipeg was a perfect 6-0 when Jackson started the game. He also posted an impressive 7.4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

“I really liked what he did with us last year,” manager Rick Forney said. “He’s very consistent. He’s a strike-thrower and has Double-A and Triple-A experience. He has great poise when he’s out on the mound. We have high expectations of Matt. We think he can legitimately be a 10-game winner and throw 125 innings for us. He’s a very important piece to our starting rotation.”

The Goldeyes now have 13 players signed for the 2014 season, including seven pitchers and six position players.
