In this week’s episode of A Call Away, Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre radio broadcaster Adam Giardino catches up with RailRiders outfielder Mike Tauchman and left-handed pitcher Danny Coulombe, who are both in their first seasons in the Yankees organization.

Tauchman looks back at his time with the big club to begin the season, plus regales with his story of how he met RailRiders manager Jay Bell and was immediately turned around and sent back to the big leagues.

Coulombe looks back to his injury-plagued time in college with University of Southern California, South Mountain Community College, and Texas Tech University. He also brings us back to September 2014, detailing what was going through his mind as he ran out of the bullpen to make his MLB Debut.

Giardino is joined, as always during the podcast, by his broadcast partner with the RailRiders, Adam Marco. This week they look at infielder Breyvic Valera, who two weeks ago was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco Giants and has just been named the International League Player of the Week as he flashes all sorts of power in Triple-A. The pair also previews Didi Gregorius’ rehab stint with Scranton and looks at the recent hot streak by Logan Morrison—someone who hit 39 homers with Tampa Bay just two years ago.

The podcast finishes with reports from broadcasters Matt Dean of the Charleston RiverDogs (High-A) and Jon Mozes of the Trenton Thunder (Double-A).
