The Winnipeg Goldeyes have acquired left-handed pitcher Christian Torres from the Lincoln Saltdogs in exchange for a player to be named later.
Torres was 5-6 with a 3.36 ERA in nine starts and 11 relief appearances last season for the High-A Carolina League’s Down East Wood Ducks (Texas Rangers).
“We’re very short-handed from the left side of our bullpen, so we needed to find someone,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “He’s done really well in affiliated baseball and was available, so I didn’t hesitate to move on it.”
The Canovanas, Puerto Rico native walked 19 and struck out 55 in 61.2 innings pitched, and averaged 1.64 ground outs for every air out (the 2018 Major League average was 1.03).
