Rick Forney on Ryan Flores: Ryan’s an arm that we’ve seen a lot of the last couple of years. He’s really developed into one of the better middle relievers in the league. He has some deception in his delivery with a low, three-quarter arm slot with good velocity and a good secondary pitch. He’s produced some really good numbers in our league.
