Starter Salamida back in Goldeyes' rotation

  • Print

THE Winnipeg Goldeyes announced Wednesday that starting pitcher Chris Salamida will return to the bullpen for a third season.

Salamida, 27, has been signed to a contract for the 2012 season by Goldeyes manager Rick Forney.

A southpaw from Watervliet, N.Y., Salamida won 11 games for the Goldeyes last season to join Rafael Gross as the only two pitchers in franchise history to win 10 games or more in back-to-back seasons.

Winnipeg's starting rotation for 2012 so far will also include Ace Walker and Matt Rusch.

All three pitchers have won at least 10 games and compiled more than 100 innings in a season at the independent level in the past.

"We like the three guys we have signed so far to start games for us," Forney said in a statement. "Hopefully we'll be able to find two guys that are equally as talented to complete the rotation."

In 2012, Salamida needs three wins to join Mike Bailey for fifth place on the Goldeyes' all-time wins list. His third start in 2012 will tie him with Gross for fifth on the Goldeyes' all-time list for games started.
