Goldeyes sign Lafferty for 2014

  • Print

The Goldeyes re-upped one of their most dependable bullpen warriors this week, signing southpaw Brendan Lafferty for the 2014 season.

Lafferty, 27, was a rock in relief for the Fish last season, and set a record by appearing in 53 games out of the bullpen, surpassing Brian Beuning’s high point of 51 appearances in 2008. That also tied him with the top spot for most appearances by any pitcher In the American Association.

Lafferty, a Californian, went 5-2 with a 3.49 ERA in 49 innings, and hurled 50 strikeouts in that time. He was a hot recruit in independent ball last year, after he was cut free from a four-season career in major league organizations.

The Goldeyes now have four players signed for 2014, including three pitchers and one position player.
