Coach Anger on Gerst:
"Andy missed out on the fall tournaments, but is 100% healthy now. He'll be a little behind as we start the season, but he is already catching up. If he starts putting things together with his game and be more consistent, he can be a starter for us. He needs a block of time where he can keep working and improving."
