Fish bring in Coles to replace Graham, who moves to Mexican team

  • Print

Easy come, easy go: after just 10 days with the Winnipeg Goldeyes, promising outfielder Tyler Graham has scampered off to the Mexican League – but a familiar face will replace him.

Graham, 29, was traded to Winnipeg from the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on June 10, and proceeded to spark the offense with his speedy ways, stealing eight bases in nine games. But on Thursday, the Fish announced he had left to play in Veracruz, Mexico.

To fill the gap, the Goldeyes are bringing back outfielder Mike Coles, who was part of last year’s championship-winning Goldeyes team after being traded from the Gary SouthShore RailCats in August 2012. He hit .221 with seven RBI in 27 games with the Goldeyes that season.

The 30-year-old did a short stint in the Atlantic League earlier this year.

The Goldeyes open a four-game home series against the Lincoln Saltdogs tonight at Shaw Park.
