Rick Forney on Mitchell Lambson: I’m really excited about the return of Victor (Capellan) and Mitch. We had a really good bullpen situation last year, and these two guys were a large reason why. Mitch is very versatile and filled many roles for us. We are a better pitching staff with the return of these two players.
