On this week’s episode of the Chasin’ 28 podcast, Ricky Keeler and James O’Connell talk about the New York Yankees being on a 8-game spring training win streak. Does it mean anything that the Yankees are winning all of these games or is it just spring training?
Then, the conversation shifts to injury updates relating to Miguel Andujar and Kyle Higashioka. With Andujar’s injury, what does it mean for Tyler Wade and what do they make of the Yankees trying Gio Urshela at shortstop and DJ LeMahieu at third base? Plus, with Robinson Chirinos having a fractured wrist, do the Yankees have an issue at backup catcher should Higashioka be out for an extended amount of time?
After doing 3 up, 3 down for the week, the duo goes over the rules MLB is experimenting with in the minor leagues at each level. They give their take on some of the rules that have the potential to stick at the big leagues going forward.
With their final thoughts, they talk about their NCAA Tournament picks and the announcement made by Governor Cuomo that Yankee Stadium can be 20% filled for Opening Day on April 1 against the Toronto Blue Jays.
