The Winnipeg Goldeyes have added outfielder Bobby Coyle and re-signed right-handed pitcher Jailen Peguero to the 2016 roster.
Coyle last played in 2014 in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ organization. The Chatsworth, California native batted .289 with five home runs and 20 RBI in 47 games played for the Double-A Southern League’s Chattanooga Lookouts.
“Bobby is a real strong offensive player,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney.
“He has some pop, can drive in runs, and can also run the bases a little bit.”
Peguero returns for a second year with the Goldeyes. The former Major League right-hander finished tied for fourth in the American Association with 49 appearances, which also ranks as the sixth-highest single-season total in Goldeyes’ history.
