Quote to note

"He's not just a big kid that can hit the ball. He can pay first base a little bit and he knows what he's doing. It's not just a big swing. He can make an adjustment, hit the ball up the middle, put the ball in play with two strikes."
-- Indians manager Terry Francona, on Minor Leaguer Mike McDade
