The Goldeyes acquired infielder Mitch Glasser and left-handed pitcher Onas Farfan from the Cleburne Railroaders to complete the April 5th trade that sent Maikol Gonzalez to Cleburne in exchange for two players to be named later.
Glasser and Farfan were then traded to the Gary SouthShore RailCats to complete part of the August 10th deal in which the Goldeyes acquired Charle Rosario in exchange for Daniel Minor, four players to be named later, and cash considerations.
