Goldeyes trade outfielder Carpenter, release pitcher

  • Print

The Winnipeg Goldeyes baseball team traded rookie outfielder Ridge Carpenter, 23, to the Sioux Falls Pheasants and released pitcher Billy Spottiswood on Monday morning.

Manager Rick Forney traded Carpenter, who hit .218 with 14 RBI in 56 games with the Goldeyes this season, for a player to be named later while Spottiswood was released to return home for personal reasons.

The Goldeyes clarified that pitcher Brian Beuning, who needed to return to his profession as a Minnesota State Patrol Trooper, was placed on revocable waivers and not released as stated earlier today. Beuning, who has a 0.82 ERA as a relief pitcher with the Goldeyes in 10 appearances, will remain with the Goldeyes at this time.

The Goldeyes will host the Quebec Capitales of the Can Am League for a three-game set beginning Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Shaw Park. The games are part of an interlocking schedule agreement for the 2012 season between the American Association and the Can Am League.
