ROSSI ON FISH: "Mike is coming off back-to-back years with injuries. He needs to stay injury free to help this club, because when healthy he is one of the top defensive outfielders in the conference. We will count heavily on him to provide his usual outstanding defense in centerfield, and as one of our top run-producers at the plate. I'm expecting Mike to finish his career strong with an outstanding season."
