Ray Sadler is joining the Goldeyes after four seasons with Kansas City.

A new baseball veteran is joining the Winnipeg Goldeyes fold today, after one of the team’s most jovial characters decided to hang up his glove.

The Fish announced outfielder Leonard Davis, who joined the Goldeyes this season after taking a year off baseball to stay home with his wife and infant son, has decided to retire from the pro game.

Taking his place will be Ray Sadler, who the Fish picked up from the Kansas City T-Bones. The 32-year-old outfielder is in his 14th pro season, the last four of which were spent in Kansas City.

In 41 games with the T-Bones this season, the 1999 Chicago Cubs draft pick hit .218 with 10 home runs and 22 RBI, and stole eight bases in nine attempts. Sadler once batted his way to the major leagues, joining the Pittsburgh Pirates for three games in 2005. He hit a homer against the San Francisco Giants.

The Goldeyes also announced they shortened their bullpen, releasing southpaw pitcher Aaron Correa.
