Winnipeg Goldeyes LogoThe Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed first baseman Correlle Prime and catcher Luis Touron for the 2019 season.

Prime played in 79 games last year for the Texas AirHogs, hitting .279 with 16 doubles, seven home runs, and 42 RBI. The Bradenton, Florida native demonstrated remarkable consistency for Texas, hitting safely in 58 of the 79 contests, and going consecutive games without a hit on just three occasions.

Touron played overseas last year for the Trebic Nuclears of the Czech Baseball Extraliga. In 2017, the Miami, Florida native hit .308 with 12 doubles, 29 RBI, 23 walks, and a .406 on-base percentage in 52 games for the Empire Professional Baseball League’s (EPBL) Sullivan Explorers, and was voted an EPBL all-star.

The Goldeyes now have three players signed to contracts for the 2019 season.
