SSS on the Farm Podcast 35 — Birmingham Barons 2022 season review

Darren Black and Brett Ballantini review this year’s standouts in Double-A

Darren Black chats with Brett Ballantini about the highs and lows of the 2022 Birmingham Barons. Hey, did you know the Barons had a better record without all those blue-chip prospects added as part of Project Birmingham?

See, you’ll learn some stuff:

  • How José Rodríguez went from 98-pound weakling to Charles Atlas superman in the course of a couple of months!
  • Davis Martin has lost his potent put-away pitch in the majors compared to Double-A, but hey, he wasn’t supposed to be in the majors yet, anyway
  • The “new Martin,” Sean Burke, underwent an amazing transformation from first half-Bham to second, and holy moly was the second half better
  • The parade of potential second basemen on the South Side continues beyond Popeye, to MLB debuter Lenyn Sosa and Wiffle batter Yolbert Sánchez
  • Oscar Colás seemed to hit the ball farther and farther as the season wore on; what’s the key to him breaking into the majors in 2023?
