Want an update on Blue Jays prospects from the people who see them play every day? Tune into Around The Nest, the only weekly podcast that features minor league broadcasters from up and down an entire Major League Baseball franchise!
Around The Nest broadcasts live every Friday at 4 pm Eastern and is also available for download for later listening. The host, the Voice of the Lansing Lugnuts Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, speaks with his counterparts in triple-A Buffalo, double-A New Hampshire, and advanced-A Dunedin about the goings on with each team and to give insight beyond the statlines.
Here’s a preview of today’s episode from Jesse:
Jason Leblebijian is hono(u)red by the International League, the Dunedin Blue Jays land three on the Florida State League North Division All-Star Team, and the Lansing Lugnuts place four on the Midwest League Eastern Division All-Star Team. Meanwhile, Richard Urena has hits in 12 of 13 games, Bo Bichette has hit safely in 17 straight games, and... well, the Dunedin Blue Jays have lost eight straight games, though Cavan Biggio and Juan Kelly enjoyed solid weeks. All this and more on another week of Jay-talking around the Blue Jays' MiLB affiliates!
