Goldeyes sign slugger

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed a proven slugger in veteran outfielder Cristian Guerrero.

Guerrero, 31, will join the Winnipeg Goldeyes for the 2012 American Association after playing the last four seasons with the Gary SouthShore RailCats.

In 98 games with the RailCats last season, Guerrero hit .294 with 12 home runs and recorded 82 RBI, which is a single-season career-high for RBI for him.

"Cristian has been a big run producer in our league the last few years that he has been in it," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said in a statement. "He’s been able to do that in a very difficult offensive park. The U.S. Steel Yard in Gary doesn’t necessarily produce power numbers. He’s always hit well against us at Shaw Park and he enjoys playing in Winnipeg. You need veteran guys that can play every day."

Forney said he expects Guerrero will play right field and designated hitter and hit in the middle of the batting order
