INF CONTRERAS RE-SIGNS WITH PADRES

The Lincoln Saltdogs announced on Wednesday that infielder Anthony Contreras has re-signed with the San Diego Padres organization.  The move comes just over a week after Contreras had signed with Lincoln.

“This is the ultimate goal, for our players to have the opportunity to get back into affiliated baseball,” said Saltdogs manager Marty Scott.  “We thought all along that Anthony deserved to be there, and his return to the Padres organization certainly validates that belief.”

Contreras began the 2008 season as the starting shortstop for the Saltdogs, and was among the league leaders in hits when the Padres picked him up in June and sent him to Class A Fort Wayne.  He hit .304 the rest of the ’08 season, earning an offseason promotion to Class AA San Antonio.  Anthony spent all of 2009 with the Mission, hitting .248 in 81 at-bats.  The Padres released him at the end of spring training this season, but have now decided to give him another shot.

Entering their tenth season, the Saltdogs have seen 24 different players signed by major-league organizations.  Contreras becomes the second player to be signed away from Lincoln two different times, along with former Saltdogs catcher Kevin Sullivan.

Season Ten of Saltdogs Baseball begins on May 13 in Sioux Falls, with the home opener scheduled for May 25 against Wichita.  For more team and ticket information, go to www.saltdogs.com.
