The Winnipeg Goldeyes have added left-handed pitcher Zack Dodson to their roster.
The San Antonio, Texas native was signed just prior to Winnipeg’s game against the Gary SouthShore RailCats in Indiana on Monday.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes may have lost Sunday’s game 4-2 to the visit Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, but there was still a reason to celebrate.
Outfielder Reggie Abercrombie struck his 802nd base hit, breaking the American Association’s all-time hits record previously held by David Espinoza. Abercrombie tied Espinoza’s record of 801 in the bottom of the first, hammering a two-run homer over the left-field fence.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes have acquired outfielder Dexter Kjerstad from the Kansas City T-Bones in exchange for a player to be named later.
Kjerstad hit .252 with four home runs and 30 RBI in 57 games for the T-Bones this season. The Amarillo, Texas native finished 2017 in Kansas City where he batted .379 in 17 contests.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes have added right-handed pitcher Tyler Herron to the team’s roster.
Herron was claimed off waivers from the Lincoln Saltdogs on Wednesday in order to join Winnipeg.
