The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed outfielder Willy Garcia for the 2020 season.

The former Major League player hit .310 with 58 runs scored, 23 doubles, 17 home runs, and 73 RBI in 86 games for the Goldeyes last season.

“I’m pleased to announce that Willy is returning,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “He had a great season for us, providing a run-producing presence in the middle of our order. Willy is also a great defender that possesses the best outfield arm in the league.”

The Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native tied for 14th in the American Association in batting average, tied for eighth in home runs, seventh in RBI, and third in slugging percentage (.548).

The Goldeyes now have eight players under contract for the 2020 season.
