Quick Quotes

-Chip Hale on facing Tyson Ross

"I think maybe Chase needed a little break. He's been working with [pitching coach Mike Harkey] on some fundamental stuff and getting the ball down and all that stuff. But of course, you're not going to see that unless you pitch in a game. So we're going to try to get him in some games out of the bullpen."
