“As a player, I haven’t seen what he can do in game situations, but judging off spring ball and all the workouts we’re doing (Justin Kirkland) is going to be a wrecking ball, ” Oliver said. “Dude is like 300 pounds, something like that, 6-2 he’s like a big bowling ball. I can’t wait to see what he does on the field. As a person, he’s a joyful guy. He comes from a small town.”
