LAJEUNESSE ON FERRO- "Mandy will primarily see her playing time as a corner outfielder. She will also be relied upon to provide innings in the circle as a closer or in crucial situations. We are looking for Mandy to once again be the catalyst at the top of our lineup, where she's shown the ability to provide power, speed, and hit for average."
