FARGO, N.D. — The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks re-signed third baseman Leobaldo Pina and catcher Wilfredo Gimenez Monday ahead of the 2020 American Association season.
Pina, 25, has played 194 games for the RedHawks over the past two seasons. A seven-year member of the St. Louis Cardinals organization, Pina reached the Double-A level in 2017 before coming to Fargo-Moorhead for the 2018 season. The third baseman was named to the 2019 American Association All-Star Game and picked up a runner-up finish in the 2019 American Association Home Run Derby. In his time with the RedHawks, Pina has a .321 batting average, 117 RBIs, 17 home runs, 56 doubles, and 99 runs scored in 735 at bats.
Gimenez, 29, was originally acquired by the RedHawks in a trade with the Gary SouthShore RailCats in late August. The experienced catcher backstopped Fargo-Moorhead to a playoff appearance and started all five games of the North Division Championship Series behind the plate. The Venezuelan spent seven years in the Miami Marlins organization before moving to the American Association with Gary in 2017. He played 177 games for the RailCats over three seasons and helped lead the team to two playoff appearances. Gimenez will suit up for his 11th season of professional baseball in 2020.
