Rick Forney on Victor Capellan: I’m really excited about the return of Victor and Mitch (Lambson). We had a really good bullpen situation last year, and these two guys were a large reason why. Victor, in my opinion, was not only the top bullpen arm in the league, but also should have received consideration for pitcher of the year.
