Goldeyes ship Moesquit, Osuna, Samson to X's

  • Print

IT'S not usually the season for Goldeyes news, but the club popped up on Tuesday to announce two players, and the rights to a third, are headed south.

Infielder Kevin Moesquit, southpaw pitcher Edgar Osuna, and the rights to shortstop Nate Samson are headed to the Sioux City Explorers as the Goldeyes moved to wrap up their end of an Aug. 15 trade in which Explorers pitcher Jason Jarvis headed to Winnipeg for their playoff chase.

Moesquit, 22 and the cousin of Goldeyes infielder Yurendell de Caster, appeared in 44 games with the Goldeyes last season, hitting .245 with two home runs and 18 RBI. Osuna, the first Mexican-born player to suit up for the Goldeyes, spent most of the season plagued by injury, going 3-2 with a 3.19 ERA and a complete-game shutout before he finished the season on the injured list.

Samson, a talented shortstop, was signed by the Chicago Cubs organization during the season.
