Rick Forney on John Gorman: John’s had a nice career in the Athletics’ organization as a bullpen guy. He doesn’t walk a lot of guys, has a good slider, and punches guys out when the opportunity presents itself. He’s a guy that could be a starter in our league as well because of his pitchability. He’s played some high-level baseball, so the speed of our league won’t overwhelm him. He’s hungry and anxious to play, and I love the versatility he has. I think John can be a really good pitcher in our league.
