Episode 60:

Three Strikes (2:30)

  • Top-10 overall prospects Joey Gallo and J.P. Crawford were promoted to the Rangers' Major League roster and Triple-A Lehigh Valley, respectively, over the last week. Tyler and Sam discuss what both moves mean for the infielders and which one seems more exciting.
  • Answering a question submitted via Twitter, the two podcast hosts talk about which former top prospects from the past may have been hurt by being brought up to the Majors too quickly.
  • Tyler and Sam close out the opening segment with a discussion of Royals prospect Hunter Dozier, who was featured in last week's Toolshed, and what he's done to revive his stock in the Kansas City system.

Alex Bregman interview (19:08)

  • Top Astros prospect and 2015 second overall pick Alex Bregman calls into the podcast from Corpus Christi to discuss his extremely hot start to the 2016 season, how a new approach has added some power, how he feels about a move to third base and what his Draft experience was like a year ago.
