The Winnipeg Goldeyes signed right-handed pitcher Eric Carter on Friday.
The Utah native pitched in the St. Louis Cardinals’ organization last season, splitting time with the High-A Florida State League’s Palm Beach Cardinals and the Double-A Texas League’s Springfield Cardinals.
“I’m pleased to announce the addition of Eric,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “Eric is a quality, late-inning reliever with plus stuff, and has the ability to fill multiple late-inning roles for us.”
Carter combined for a 2-3 record, three saves, and a 2.77 ERA in 26 relief appearances. In 39.0 innings, he allowed just 28 hits and nine walks, while striking out 40.
In other Goldeyes transactions, right-handed pitcher Devin Raftery has signed with the Mexican League’s Acereros de Monclova. Raftery was acquired from the Lincoln Saltdogs via trade on January 30. Additionally, left-handed pitcher Robby Sexton has elected to retire from professional baseball. Sexton played the previous three seasons in the Boston Red Sox’ organization, and was signed by Winnipeg on March 20.
