Infielder returns to Goldeyes from Mexican professional league

  • Print

Infielder Yurendell de Caster has rejoined the Winnipeg Goldeyes baseball team after spending the past 12 days in the Mexican professional league.

The team announced Tuesday afternoon that Goldeyes manager Rick Forney re-signed de Caster, 32, who had left the Goldeyes on June 21 for Mexico where he played in seven games and hit .320 with Tabasco.

As a result of de Caster's return, the Goldeyes traded veteran infielder Gabby Martinez to the Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League for future considerations. Martinez hit .211 with three home runs and eight RBI in 10 games with the Goldeyes.

Before de Caster left the Goldeyes, de Caster had a .351 batting average over 31 games with four home runs and 26 RBI. He is still eighth overall in American Association hitting.

De Caster will be in the lineup tonight at 7 when the Goldeyes begin a 12-game homestand. Winnipeg will host the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in the first of a four-game set between the two clubs. The first 2,500 through the gates will receive a Goldeyes hat.
