Goldeyes add pair of pitchers named Kyle
The Winnipeg Goldeyes added a pair of Kyles to their roster on Tuesday, as they head into the final weeks before training camp opens in early May.
The latest acquisitions, right-handed pitcher Kyle Bellamy and southpaw hurler Kyle Anderson, round out the Fish bullpen and rotation.
Bellamy, 26, will arrive in the Fish bullpen after injuries derailed much of his professional career. The last time he pitched was 2012, when he made 34 appearances between A Advanced and AA teams in the Chicago White Sox organization.
"We’re going to give him the opportunity to pitch the ninth inning for us," Fish manager Rick Forney said. "He’s a sidearm pitcher with a lot of deception in his delivery. We think he can be perfect fit for us at the back of the bullpen."
Meanwhile Anderson, 23, will slide into the Fish’s starting rotation, after spending two seasons pitching in the Toronto Blue Jays organization. Last year, playing with Vancouver in the A-level Northwest League, he went 5-3 with 2.71 ERA.
"He competes well in the strike zone, has tremendous command, great mechanics and he’s a really reliable guy," Forney said. "He’s exactly what I was lokoing for in the back of my rotation."
The Goldeyes now have 23 players signed for 2014, including 12 pitchers and 11 position players.
