ROSSI ON FAY: "Brian had a bounce back season last year. He was one of the top hitters for the club, and was fourth on the team in RBI's. He will swing between 3rd and 1st base, and should see time at DH. With a positive year offensively the staff is expecting him to continue to show a marked improvement."
