A familiar Fish is back in the fold today, as the Winnipeg Goldeyes look to bolster their team as they battle to stay in the playoff conversation.

Pitcher Chris Salamida, who played three seasons with the Goldeyes and was a key cog in the team's American Association championship run last year, officially came out of retirement Saturday to join the Fish rotation. The 29-year-old southpaw went 26-20 with a combined 4.33 ERA during his time in Winnipeg.

He also holds the record for the second highest number of games started by a Goldeyes pitcher, is third in all-time team strikeouts with 300, fourth in wins with 25 and fifth in innings pitched. To pass the second highest strikeout holder -- now-team manager Rick Forney himself -- Salamida must only strike out 14 batters.

Forney announced his pleasure with the reacquisition, calling Salamida "one of the best left-handed starting pitchers in the league" in a statement Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Fish placed hurler Mark Hardy, who is healing a shoulder injury, on the inactive list.. Hardy has gone 6-3 with a 3.65 ERA in 13 starts this season. He'll be available to be reactivated on August 19.

After a last-minute comeback attempt fell flat Friday night in a 6-4 loss, the Fish will look to even the score against the visiting Trois-Rivieres Aigles tonight at 6 p.m. at Shaw Park.
