The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed right-handed pitcher Victor Capellan and signed left-handed pitcher Jose Jose to the team’s 2019 roster.
Capellan returns to Winnipeg for a fourth season and was 4-4 with a 3.23 ERA last year, while finishing second in the league in saves (22) and tied for sixth in appearances (47).
Capellan heads into his 12th season of professional baseball, and is 27-28 lifetime with 44 saves and a 3.63 ERA in 359 appearances, all of them in relief.
“I’m pleased to announce the addition of Victor and Jose to our roster,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “They are both coming off fantastic seasons closing games in the American Association. By adding Victor and Jose to go along with (Jack) Charleston, (Devin) Raftery, (Dylan) Thompson, and (Brandon) Bingel, we feel like we have a pretty good bullpen situation heading into camp.”
Jose was 3-3 with 11 saves and a 3.80 ERA for the Lincoln Saltdogs last year in one start and 33 relief appearances. A native of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Jose struck out 40 and walked 14 in 42.2 innings.
The Fish also announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Devin Raftery to a contract. Raftery was acquired last week in a trade with the Saltdogs.
