ROSSI ON FAY: "Brian was thrust into a starter's role as a freshman after a number of injuries. He struggled most of the year making the adjustment to college ball. With a year under his belt the staff is expecting him to show a marked improvement. He will be moved to first base to add depth to that position. The amount of playing time he receives will be determined by how well he hits once given an opportunity."
