In this week’s episode of A Call Away, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders radio broadcaster Adam Giardino breaks down what’s happening up and down the ladder in the Yankees minor leagues. Conversations this week include infielder/outfielder Ryan McBroom, whose bat is heating up after a slower start to 2019, and left-handed pitcher Nestor Cortes, who talks about his relationship with Gio Gonzalez and what the two-time All Star has meant to him as a fellow graduate of Hialeah High School (Hialeah, FL).

Giardino is joined during the podcast by fellow broadcaster, Adam Marco, The Voice of the RailRiders. The two bid farewell to Gonzalez and discuss what all the injuries in New York mean for the top level of the Yankees’ farm system. They also talk about the recent signings of Logan Morrison and Brad Miller.

Later in the show, it’s a bonus interview with infielder Cavan Biggio, the son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio. He’s a 24-year-old on the Buffalo Bisons (Triple-A, Toronto Blue Jays) and talks about his own versatility and how he learned to embrace it from lessons instilled in him by his father.

The podcast wraps up by jumping to the lower levels of the system, breaking down a few hot starts from guys in Single-A Charleston (right-handed pitcher Shawn Semple), High-A Tampa (infielder Dermis Garcia), and Double-A Trenton (outfielder Ben Ruta and right-handed pitcher Garrett Whitlock).
