The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed veteran infielder Carlos Garcia.
Garcia hit .275 with one home run and 21 RBI in 76 games last season for the Atlantic League’s Lancaster Barnstormers. A native of Municipio de Diaz, Venezuela, Garcia added 26 runs scored, seven doubles, and was 21-for-24 in stolen base attempts.
In Wednesday’s signing, the Fish also announced Wes Darvill has been moved from the active roster. Darvill has been selected to the Canadian National Team for the 2019 Pan-Am Games in Lima, Peru. The baseball portion of the event runs from July 27 to August 4.
On Monday, the Goldeyes released left-handed pitcher Grant Borne.
Winnipeg opens a three-game series at home tonight against the Texas AirHogs. First pitch from Shaw Park is at 7:05 p.m.
