The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed two right-handed pitchers to their roster for the 2019 season.
Brandon Bingel was re-signed on Monday, along with pitcher Tyler Garkow.
Both pitchers have three-plus years of professional experience, but retain rookie classification in the American Association.
Bingel posted a 2.85 ERA for the Goldeyes last year in 41 relief appearances. The Massachusetts native worked 53.2 innings, striking out 43 and allowing just three home runs.
“Brandon and Tyler provide our roster with two quality rookie arms that have plenty of experience in independent baseball,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “Brandon was really good for us last year in a long relief role, and I’m hoping he can give us similar production. Tyler logged a lot of innings and gained playoff experience with Trois-Rivieres of the Can-Am League.”
Garkow was 7-5 with a 4.12 FIP (4.72 ERA) in 14 starts and five relief appearances. The Glendora, California native struck out 63, walked 32, and allowed six home runs in 87.2 innings pitched.
The Goldeyes now have 11 players under contract for the 2019 season.
