Walter on McSweeney
"Morgan has been electric all offseason. A power downhill fastball with life, two plus breaking pitches and a reliable change-up are all part of his repertoire. It's hard to say what role Mo will be in this Spring. He could start Saturday or Sunday, and he could close or come into an important game and throw the last three innings. What's easy to say is that we want the ball in his hands as much as possible."
