The Winnipeg Goldeyes have acquired right-handed pitcher Victor Capellan from the Joplin Blasters in exchange for cash.
Capellan, a native of Monte Cristi in the Dominican Republic, is 2-1 with seven saves and a 2.37 ERA this season. He is tied for ninth in the American Association with 32 appearances, and has struck out 44 batters in 38.0 innings pitched while allowing just 22 hits.
The Goldeyes also announced right-handed pitcher Kyle Lotzkar had retired from professional baseball. Lotzkar was signed on June 16 and was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in 18 relief appearances.
Capellan will suit up tonight at Shaw Park as the Goldeyes play the second game of a four-game series against the Wichita Wingnuts.
