Rick Forney on Roy Morales: Roy did a good job last year in Kansas City, both offensively and defensively. He receives well. He’s a good offensive player who runs well and gives you good at bats. He walks as much as he strikes out, and he’s hungry for another opportunity in affiliated ball. He’s very anxious to play, and is thankful for the opportunity to play for the Goldeyes.
