The Goldeyes made two deals with Frontier League teams in the last few days, sending Ridge Hoopii-Haslam to the Joliette Slammers Friday, then send RHP Rob Tasin to the Evansville Otters Monday. Both deals made for players to be named later.
Tasin was 0-1 with 3 saves and 4.50 ERA in 19 relief appearances in 2016.
Hoopii-Haslam batted .239, with 4 HR and 30 RBI in 61 games; the Hawaiian was the game hero several times in 2016, helping The Fish to key wins in their efforts to reach the post-season. Ridge is one of those character-players that quickly become fan favourites, and I have no doubt that Joliette fans will love having him.
