LAJEUNESSE ON VOLZ - "We are looking for Megan to provide depth defensively at a number of positions. At the plate, her ability to hit line-drives to all fields with power will make her a tough out for any opposing pitcher. She has been working primarily as a corner outfielder. Her strong throwing arm, coupled with her range in the outfield, will help her see time this spring."
