Rick Forney on Garrett Harris: Garrett’s intriguing. He’s young, and he’s coming off a successful season. He competes really well, works hard, and is a good person. He’s a fastball, slider, split-finger guy. He can throw his slider for strikes and he can throw it off the plate. We’re hoping he can be a guy who can log some innings for us and give us a chance to win.
