WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Goldeyes made their final cuts today and longtime infielder Amos Ramon was one of the casualties.
The 30-year-old Ramon played four seasons with the Goldeyes and had moved to Winnipeg full-time. He appeared in 179 games with the Fish and helped them win the 2012 American Association championship, where Ramon was named the league’s playoff MVP.
The Goldeyes also released right-handed pitcher David Hatt, placed righty Christian Garcia on waivers and put starters Matt Jackson and Nick Hernandez on the inactive list. Manager Rick Forney has also signed right-handed pitcher Chase Johnson.
Winnipeg is now down to the 21-man limit.
They wrap up their exhibition schedule Tuesday night in Kansas City and then travel to Amarillo for Thursday’s season opener against the Sox.
