WINNIPEG – Winnipeg Goldeyes inked a deal with infielder Darren Seferina on Wednesday.

Three-time all-star, in affiliated minor leagues, Seferina (pronounced seff-ur-EE-nuh) last played in 2018 where he split time in the St. Louis Cardinals’ and Milwaukee Brewers organizations.

“I’m really excited to add Darren,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “He’s a young, explosive player that can do many positive things for a ball club. I love his defensive versatility, and I really feel like he has the type of offensive skill set that can impact a lineup. Darren is a hungry and motivated player.”

The Willemstad, Curacao native hit a combined .214 with 12 doubles, six home runs, 29 RBI, and 17 stolen bases over 97 games for the Double-A Texas League’s Springfield Cardinals, the Double-A Southern League’s Biloxi Shuckers, and the Low-A Midwest League’s Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

He twice represented Curacao at the Little League World Series, including an international championship and second place overall finish at the event in 2005.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes open the 2020 season on May 19th on the road against the Cleburne Railroaders. The Goldeyes’ 2020 home opener is on Tuesday, May 26th versus the St. Paul Saints.
