After hurling hot through the start of the Winnipeg Goldeyes season, pitcher Kyle Anderson is headed back to affiliated ball.

On Thursday, the Goldeyes announced that the Arizona Diamondbacks had bought Anderson’s contract, summoning him to their organization. He is the 63rd Goldeye to have his contract sold to a major-league team, and the first to be plucked by the Diamondbacks. They expect to assign him to their A-level affiliate in South Bend of the Midwest League.

 

Anderson was a pleasant surprise for the Fish this season. The 24-year-old hurler had just two seasons of pro ball beneath his belt, both with the Toronto Blue Jays’ short-season A-level affiliate in Vancouver. The American Association is a step up, as far as competition is concerned, and Anderson handled the competition firmly. By the time his contract was purchased, his 1.64 ERA through eight appearances ranked third in the entire league. In sum, Anderson gave up only one home run and nine walks in 49-and-a-third innings on the bump.

 

Meanwhile, the Goldeyes are set to finish their 10-game road trip through the east coast tonight, facing off against the Trois-Rivieres Aigles. They return to Shaw Park on Friday to open a seven-game homestand, starting with four against the rival Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.
