"It was never in the plan for me to be here this year,'' he said. "I'm really proud that I went out and didn't give them any choice but to bring me up. I really learned a lot and am proud of my progress."

"I told Andy it couldn't have worked out any better. I got to end on a good note and finished the year healthy. Now, I get to spend the last three weeks of the yaer watching like like David Price of the Rays and try to learn something."
