Around The Nest is the weekly Toronto Blue Jays minor league podcast, hosted by Tyler Zickel of the Vancouver Canadians (high-A). On this episode, Zick is joined by Pat Malacaro of the Buffalo Bisons calling in from Syracuse, Nathan Strauss of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (double-A), and Andrew Thriffiley of the Dunedin Blue Jays (low-A).
On this week’s show we talk about Trent Palmer’s no-hitter for the D-Jays attended by his mom and why Dunedin is the nicest team in the league. Vancouver saw tri-home runs against Tri-City when Luis De Los Santos, Will Robertson, and Davis Schneider went back-to-back-to-back while Orelvis Martinez is on a cold streak. Adrian Hernandez and Brandon Eisert both had big performances out of the bullpen, Chavez Young’s power is emerging to complement league-leading defense, and Luis Quinones’s best-in-organization 12-to-6-curveball. Errors and recent callups have been marring the Bisons this week and Cavan Biggio is finally starting to hit.
