The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed catcher Luis Alen for a sixth season.
The 28-year-old hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization.
“Obviously, Luis is one of my most favourite players that we’ve ever had wear a Goldeyes uniform,” manager Rick Forney said in a release.
“Offensively, he’s a very consistent .300-hitting catcher that has the ability to drive in a lot of runs and produce a great on-base percentage. He doesn’t swing and miss very much.
The Goldeyes now have 14 players signed for the 2014 season, including seven pitchers and seven position players.
