ROSSI ON LAZZARONI: "Dan was a pleasant surprise last spring. Starting out as an outfielder he was forced into a spot starting role and eventually into the closer role. He responded tremendously with 2 wins and 6 saves the last half of the year. He will be counted on to be a major contributor out of the pen"
