Around The Nest Episode 1 – What are These Weird Glasses?

The broadcasters for the Buffalo Bisons, New Hampshire Fisher Cats, and Vancouver Canadians gather to talk about how Blue Jays prospects have started the 2023 season. Pat Malacaro (Bisons) introduces listeners to the hand gestures that can be used to challenge an automated ball and strike call, Ernie Clement’s hot start, and who is in the early running to be a spot starter for the Toronto Blue Jays. Steve Goldberg (Fisher Cats) gives us an update on Ricky Tiedemann, Jimmy Burnette’s uptick in fastball velocity, and the strong starts by Leo Jimenez, Trevor Schwecke, Dylan Rock, and Surrey’s Damiano Palmegiani. Host Tyler Zickel (Canadians) thinks Vancouver is the most talented team in the Blue Jays’ farm system. Devereaux Harrison, Justin Kelly, and Dahian Santos have seen velo increases, Riley Tirotta is the Canadians’ (and perhaps the Northwest League’s) hottest hitter, and coach Ashley Stephenson’s work with infielder Josh Kasevich using a special pair of glasses.
