Rick Forney on Jose Jose: Jose is a really good left-hander coming off an unbelievable season in the Can-Am League. He was one of the better relievers in Puerto Rico this past winter. He’s a guy that can fill many roles for you on the pitching staff, whether it’s the seventh, eighth, or ninth inning. He can do a lot of things, so hopefully he can help shorten the game up for us.
