Rick Forney on Jordan Ebert: I’m really pleased to announce the return of both Andrew (Sohn) and Jordan. Both players were very important pieces in our championship run. Jordan is a really good baseball player. He was tearing up the league before he suffered the hamstring injury in Gary that derailed his season a little bit. I’m really excited to see what he can do over a full, injury-free year.
