WINNIPEG, MB – The Winnipeg Goldeyes signed catcher Tanner DeVinny on Monday.
A true rookie, DeVinny appeared in three games earlier this season for the Sioux Falls Canaries.

The switch-hitting DeVinny led Alabama with a .398 on-base percentage and graduated this past May with a degree in Consumer Sciences. The 22-year-old DeVinny previously played at Kansas State University (Manhattan, Kansas) and Grayson County College (Denison, Texas) before transferring to Alabama for his junior year in 2016.
Additionally, the Goldeyes released rookie catcher Hunter Dolshun.
