Winnipeg Goldeyes LogoThe Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed pitchers Steven Gruver and Trevor Lubking for the 2016 season.

Gruver missed last season due to injury, but played in 2014 for the High-A Florida State League’s Fort Myers Miracle. The leftie logged 87.0 innings while striking out 58, walking 35, and allowing just one home run.

Lubking made seven relief appearances for the Milwaukee Brewers’ rookie level Arizona League affiliate last year. Also a left-hander, Lubking struck out 14 in 10.1 innings pitched, and did not allow a run in five of his seven appearances.

The Fish also signed all-star shortstop Maikol Gonzalez to a 2016 contract. Gonzalez was acquired along with right-handed pitcher Nestor Molina in a trade with the Joplin Blasters on December 18.
