In this week’s episode of A Call Away with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre radio broadcaster Adam Giardino, the broadcast team caught up with outfielder Aaron Judge as he began his rehab assignment with the RailRiders.

Judge talked about how he was feeling after his first game on rehab, how last year’s injury prepared him for dealing with this year’s setback, and which unlikely infielder was his favorite player growing up.

We also hear from RailRiders relief pitcher Danny Farquhar as he was assigned to Triple-A out of extended spring training, making his way back from the brain aneurysm. He explains his outlook on baseball—and life—after going through that and how the very fundamentals of what he does as a pitcher had to be rebuilt from the ground up.

We also get a special visit from current Baltimore Oriole farmhand, left-handed pitcher Josh Rogers, who was traded from the New York Yankees last trade deadline as part of the deal that acquired Zack Britton.

With Adam Marco flying solo with the team in Norfolk and Durham last week, the Voice of the RailRiders rejoins the podcast this week on Broadcast Banter. He had a first-hand look at Giancarlo Stanton and Judge teaming up at the top of the order last weekend against the Bulls, and breaks down what is expected of Clint Frazier as he heads to Triple-A for the first time this season.

The podcast finishes with reports from broadcasters Matt Dean of the Charleston RiverDogs (Single-A), Jon Mozes of the Trenton Thunder (Double-A) and a report with Marco (Triple-A).
