Cubs Weekly Podcast: Triple-A roundup with Alex Cohen
Triple-A Iowa broadcaster Alex Cohen joins Andy Martinez and Tony Andracki on the Cubs Weekly Podcast. The trio discusses the upcoming MLB rule changes – like larger bases and pitch clock – that have been at the Triple-A level all season.
Plus, updates on players like Adbert Alzolay, Alexander Canario, Brennen Davis and how Caleb Kilian has fared since his cup of coffee in the big leagues.
Cohen also breaks down Matt Mervis’ monster season, what he saw from a trio of pitchers (Hayden Wesneski, Brandon Hughes, Javier Assad) before they migrated to Chicago and provides several under-the-radar players to keep an eye on.
