ROSSI ON FRYER: "Neil is coming off another stellar season. He is one of the top pitchers out of the bullpen. He appeared in 23 games which was second on the team, with a team leading 8 saves. He is one of the top relievers in the conference, and the coaching staff is looking forward to him having another outstanding season. He again will be relied on heavily to be a major force."
