In this week’s episode of A Call Away, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre radio broadcaster Adam Giardino catches up with infielders Mike Ford and Logan Morrison as the Minor League Baseball season approaches the quarter-mark of 2019.

Ford hit a homer and posted a .378 on-base percentage in his 10 games with the Yankees before being sent back down to Triple-A. As a big Yankees fan growing up in Belle Mead, New Jersey, Ford explains all that it meant to him to get to put on the pinstripes and play for his childhood team. Meanwhile, Morrison is a 31-year-old veteran who is trying to return to the form that saw him produce a 39-home run season with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2017.

Giardino is joined, as always during the podcast, by his broadcast partner with the RailRiders, Adam Marco. The two take a look at Chance Adams getting up to New York with Jonathan Loaisiga going on the 60-day injured list, what Nestor Cortes Jr. showed in his Yankees debut, and what they saw in two games out of Aaron Hicks as he wrapped up his rehab assignment.

The podcast finishes with reports from broadcasters Nick Flammia of the Tampa Tarpons (High-A), Jon Mozes of the Trenton Thunder (Double-A), and Marco in Triple-A taking a look at the goings-on at the different levels of the minors.
