Reaction to Hill and Minix signings

Here's my reaction to the Jeremy Hill and Travis Minix signings.

I wasn't too shocked when I found out the Jeremy Hill had re-signed with the Ducks. Not only was Jeremy a key member of last seasons bullpen but he's also an assistant coach at Hofstra University, and an instructor at Cage 16.

He's a great set up guy who can go a few extra innings if needed. What's impressive about Jeremy is he keeps himself in amazing shape, so he's always ready to go out of the bullpen. He also brings big league experience to the Ducks.

Minix is a nice addition to the Ducks bullpen. Minix doesn't have overpowering stuff, and normally throws in the low 90's, but has the ability to get people out; something that the Ducks lacked in their 2011 playoff run. Another thing I like about Minix is versatility out of the bullpen. He can make a spot for the Ducks, or close out a game.

Great additions to the 2012 roster today!
