As the Winnipeg Goldeyes' hopes for a championship repeat slip further away, the baseball club is bringing a new look to its batting order.

Coming into the clubhouse is 22-year-old infielder Kevin Moesquit, fresh off three seasons in the Los Angeles Angels' minor-league system. The Florida native played 49 games this season with the A-level Burlington Bees in Iowa, where he hit .235 with 13 RBI and five stolen bases. Last season, in 107 games with the A-level Cedar Rapids, he hit .237 with two homers, 31 RBI and 16 stolen bases.

Leaving the Goldeyes is veteran outfielder Mike Coles, who hopped on board with the Fish just a few weeks ago, after starting the season coaching baseball near his Indiana home. The Goldeyes moved the 30-year-old batter to the Lincoln Saltdogs. Coles finished with a .240 batting average, seven RBI and nine stolen bases in 19 games with the Goldeyes.

The Fish are in the middle of an interleague road swing through Quebec, looking to break a losing skid that saw them get swept by the visiting Gary-SouthShore RailCats last week and lose two of their first three matches against the Quebec Capitales.
