The Winnipeg Goldeyes bolstered their bullpen Monday, re-signing a pair of experienced pitchers to the roster.

Winnipeg re-upped right-hander Victor Capellan and lefty Mitchell Lambson — a duo that combined for 89 appearances with the Fish last season.

Capellan led the American Association last year with 50 appearances and has pitched more than anyone in the league since 2015 (148 total appearances). Last season, he finished 4-4 and recorded five saves. His 1.25 earned runs average, over 50.1 innings pitched, was seventh-best in league history for pitchers with at least 50 innings in a single season.

“I’m really excited about the return of Victor and Mitch,” Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney said in a statement.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes bolstered their bullpen Monday, re-signing a pair of experienced pitchers to the roster.

Winnipeg re-upped right-hander Victor Capellan and lefty Mitchell Lambson — a duo that combined for 89 appearances with the Fish last season.

Capellan led the American Association last year with 50 appearances and has pitched more than anyone in the league since 2015 (148 total appearances). Last season, he finished 4-4 and recorded five saves. His 1.25 earned runs average, over 50.1 innings pitched, was seventh-best in league history for pitchers with at least 50 innings in a single season.

"I’m really excited about the return of Victor and Mitch," Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney said in a statement.

"We had a really good bullpen situation last year, and these two guys were a large reason why. Victor, in my opinion, was not only the top bullpen arm in the league, but also should have received consideration for pitcher of the year. Mitch is very versatile and filled many roles for us. We are a better pitching staff with the return of these two players."

Lambson made 39 appearances (one start) in what was his eighth season in professional baseball, finishing 7-3, with one save and a 3.98 ERA. He tallied 61 total innings, striking out 61 batters, while walking only 12.

The Goldeyes are coming off back-to-back American Association championships and will be in search of the first three-peat in league history.
