Around The Nest is the weekly Toronto Blue Jays minor league podcast, hosted by Tyler Zickel of the Vancouver Canadians (high-A). While Major League Baseball had their all-star break this week, the minor leagues kept chugging along! On this episode, Zick is joined by Gregg Caserta of the Trenton-Buffalo Thunder Bisons (triple-A), Tyler Murray of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (double-A), and the man with the stats Andrew Thriffiley of the Dunedin Blue Jays (low-A).
You can also find Around The Nest on YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Stitcher.
The Jays are looking to the government for a chance to return home, which could also mean that their triple-A team is going to head back to Buffalo soon and perhaps the Canadians will also get a chance to play summer games at Nat Bailey Stadium this year. We talk about a lot of Blue Jays prospects this week: Kevin Smith in Buffalo, Vinny Capra and Simeon Woods Richardson in New Hampshire, Nick Fraze and Ronnie Brito in Vancouver, and Sem Robberse and Orelvis Martinez down in Dunedin. But we also highlighted some lesser-known players who have contributed: Steward Berroa Thomas Ruwe with the D-Jays, Rothier and Adrian Hernandez for the Canadians, and the Fisher Cats’ Tanner Kirwer.
