He has the same type of skills that Willie has and he knows how to use his body. I’m really impressed with him.”Teodoro said that Cone talked to him of a possible roster spot but he knows he still has a long way to go to make sure he becomes a Gin King.“Of course I’m always thinking positively, coach Tim talked to me about the possibility of making the lineup but I’m just focusing on practice,” said Teodoro in Filipino. “I’m just happy that I can keep up with star players.
