The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed rookie right-handed pitcher Marshall Pautsch to the 2018 roster.
Pautsch made four starts for the Gary SouthShore RailCats as a true rookie last season, posting a 1-0 record with a 3.15 ERA.
The San Clemente, California native fared well against the Goldeyes on July 7, holding Winnipeg to one earned run in four innings while taking a no-decision at US Steel Yard. Pautsch earned his first career win on July 16 after pitching seven strong innings versus Salina.
“I’m really pleased to add Marshall to the pitching staff,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “I liked what I saw from him last year. I know it was a small sample size, but I was really impressed with the way he attacked our lineup with a no-fear mentality. He started games against some of the best teams in the American Association and really showed well.”
The Goldeyes now have 19 players under contract for the 2018 season.
