The Winnipeg Goldeyes announced Wednesday they have re-signed pitcher Matt Jackson for the 2014 season.

Jackson went 3-0 with a 3.70 ERA in seven appearances, including six starts, in 2013 after joining the Goldeyes in mid-season following his release from the San Diego Padres organization.

"I really liked what he did with us last year," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said in a statement.

"He's very consistent. He's a strike-thrower and has double-A and triple-A experience. He has great poise when he's out on the mound. We have high expectations of Matt. We think he can legitimately be a 10-game winner and throw 125 innings for us. He's a very important piece to our starting rotation."

The Fish were a perfect 6-0 when Jackson started in 2013.

The Fish now have 13 players signed for the 2014 season, including seven pitchers.
