The Winnipeg Goldeyes are continuing to build their 2018 foster, re-signing shortstop Andrew Sohn and second baseman Jordan Ebert on Monday.
“I’m really pleased to announce the return of both Andrew and Jordan,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney.
“Both players were very important pieces in our championship run. Andrew is coming off a fantastic season that saw him named to the Postseason All-Star Team. He has a dynamic offensive skill set, and I’m hoping he can repeat his success.”
Sohn is entering his fifth season of professional baseball, and was originally drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the sixth round in 2014 out of Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, Michigan). The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Sohn is a lifetime .261 hitter in 281 games played with a .343 on-base percentage.
Ebert was signed by the Goldeyes in April before having his contract purchased by the Colorado Rockies’ organization on the first day of spring training. After playing in two games for the Rookie Pioneer League’s Grand Junction Rockies, Ebert returned to the Goldeyes in late-June and hit .316 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 48 contests.
The Goldeyes now have 11 players under contract for the 2018 season.
