Rick Forney on Jordan George: Jordan’s a really good young player. I tried to sign him last year when he was released from affiliated ball. He gives you really good at bats, takes his walks, and plays multiple positions. I’m excited to watch him play. He has some upside, and I think he can get back to affiliated ball.
