Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced on Wednesday the signing of veteran infielder Jacob Blackwood to a contract for the 2014 season. Texas Rangers Jerseys . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. In 126 games with San Antonio last season, the product of Kansas City, Missouri hit .259 with seven home runs and 61 RBI. He was named the starting third baseman for the South Division in the Texas League All-Star Game. "Jake is a big addition to our ball club," Forney said. "Hes the type of infielder that provides a big impact bat to our lineup. Hes been an impactful player in our league before and were hopeful he can be an impact guy for the Goldeyes in 2014." Prior to being signed by the Padres, Blackwood had a monster year for the Kansas City T-Bones in 2010. He hit .331 with 31 home runs and 86 RBI in 99 games. His home run and RBI totals led the Northern League, while his batting average was third in the league behind Kevin West and Juan Diaz of the Goldeyes. Blackwood also led the NL with 82 runs scored, 271 total bases, a .636 slugging percentage and a 1.014 OPS. Blackwood, who has experience at all four infield positions and the two corner outfield positions, was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 16th round of the 2006 MLB amateur draft. He played four-and-a-half seasons in their system before being released and signing with the T-Bones.  The Goldeyes now have 12 players signed for the 2014 season, including six pitchers and six position players.

The report stated there was a "pattern of harassment" committed by Incognito and teammates John Jerry and Mike Pouncey that extended to two Dolphins linemen and an assistant trainer, all targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. On his Twitter account, Incognito wrote, "I would like to send Jonathan my apologies as well. Until someone tells me different you are still my brother. No hard feelings :)" He also apologized to Wells and Ross, saying "this (stuff) got cray, cray." "There are no winners in the courts," he wrote. "Just families left to deal with their decisions and pick up the pieces. You cant free something." Incognito, 30, had closed his Twitter account for two days, but returned Monday night with a noticeably different tone, apologizing for "acting like a big baby." The 6-foot-3, 319-pound lineman said he wwants to play football again. Custom Texas Rangers Jerseys. Incognitos contract with the Dolphins is about the expire making him an unrestricted free agent who can sign with any team. Where hell end up remains to be seen. Its unclear if Incognito will face punishment from the NFL moving forward. League spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press on Monday that the NFL will comment "at the appropriate time" on Wells report. Incognitos tweets have taken on a vastly different tone than they did less than a week ago when he went on a rant that quickly went viral, blasting Martin and his representative Ken Zuckerman. "The truth is going to bury you and your entire camp. You could have told the truth the entire time," Incognito tweeted last week. Incognito also wrote at the time Martin had threatened to commit suicide and listed a suicide prevention hotline. Incognito previously has taken shots at Wells. He is the independent investigator who released the 144-page report detailing Incognitos lewd and vulgar comments toward Martin, and harassment of another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer with the Dolphins.
