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 Tyler Murray of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (double-A) and the travelling man Andrew Thriffiley of the Dunedin Blue Jays (low-A).

This week, we get an update from each level from low-A up to double-A and also ask each host whether they believe their team would possibly make the playoffs this year.
