Episode 67:

Three Strikes (2:45)

  • With the All-Star break this week, Sam and Tyler talk about their favorites for MiLBY awards at the midpoint of the 2016 season.
  • The cohosts then discuss prospects they believe could be primed for big second-half turnarounds after some initial struggles.
  • With All-Star festivities still fresh in their minds, Sam and Tyler choose prospects who might not be highly thought of now but could appear in midsummer classics down the line.

Ryon Healy interview (24:55)

  • The A's No. 16 prospect joins the show to talk about his experience at this year's Futures Game, how he found out he was headed to the showcase, what he's done to put together a big 2016 season at Double-A Midland and Triple-A Nashville and what it's like to play in a system loaded with corner infield prospects.
