Kevin Hooper on David: Having a rookie as an everyday player is a rarity in our league and I believe Ambo is going to be much more polished this year after a quality first season in 2013. He brings a dynamic that you cannot teach, nor defend, and that is his dynamic speed. He can literally change a game with his speed. He will be penciled in as our right fielder and will roll the order over batting ninth.
