Coach Farley on Cox: "Kyle had a solid year with the bat, getting some big hits, especially in the middle section of the season. He will compete again at first base and in the DH role. We think he can hit for even more power than what he showed last year. Our team is confident that Kyle can get some clutch hits for us this spring."
