Rick Forney on Eric Wood: The plan is for Eric to be our third baseman, but he can play first and he can play outfield. Eric’s a hitter—we’re expecting him to come in and be a presence in the middle of the lineup and produce some offence for us. I really enjoyed communicating with him and he’s very much looking forward to this opportunity.
