The Winnipeg Goldeyes baseball team, just 12 days after winning the 2012 American Association championship, has traded three players.
Manager Rick Forney announced todaythat he traded outfielder/catcher Kyle Day and pitchers Jack VanLeur and Chris Bodishbaugh.
Day was traded to the Gary SouthShore RailCats as the player to be named later in the Aug. 6 deal, along with pitcher Dexter Carter, that brought outfielder Mike Coles and pitcher Chris Allen to the Goldeyes.
Pitchers VanLeur and Bodishbaugh were essentially loaned to the Goldeyes for their playoff runs as the two pitchers were returned to their clubs.
Left-handed pitcher VanLeur was traded back to the Sioux Falls Pheasants as one of the two players to be named later in the same deal which brought him to Winnipeg on Aug. 14.
Bodishbaugh, a right-handed pitcher, was moved back to the Sioux City Explorers as the player to be named later in the trade which brought him to on Aug. 15 to Winnipeg.
