A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR the last seven days:
- On this week’s installment of the MLB Trade Rumors podcast, host Jeff Todd spoke with Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News to discuss the Rangers‘ call-up of Joey Gallo and more. Jeff also spoke with MLBTR’s Steve Adams about the Mark Trumbo deal. A new episode of the MLB Trade Rumors Podcast will be released every Thursday and can be accessed on iTunes, SoundCloud, and Stitcher.
- University of Arizona second baseman Scott Kingery, who is widely rated as a first- or second-round prospect, spoke with MLBTR about his time at U of A and his stock heading into tomorrow’s draft. Kingery also discussed his friendship with Arizona shortstop Kevin Newman, who is rated as one of the top prospects in this year’s class. “If it’s video games, we’re competing. One night we were mini golfing and it got intense. We started even having competitions in the weight room and seeing who could get to school the fastest,” Kingery explained.
- Roger Clemens made multiple comebacks from retirement and we remembered his 2006 return to the Astros last Sunday.
- Steve was the first to learn that the Phillies released catcher John Hester.
