Pipeline Podcast: Playoff-bound prospects

September 21st, 2021

After a spirited but brief recap of the return to relative normalcy throughout the 2021 season, Jonathan Mayo and Sam Dykstra give a full preview of the Minor League playoffs. They break down formats of series at each level and report on 14 players from the Top 100 Prospects list who are headed for postseason action. They also provide rankings of the nine playoff series based on prospect talent.

Next, they take a look at the much-anticipated big league debut of Rays right-hander Shane Baz, then offer an in-depth discussion of the newest edition to the Top 100 list -- Mariners first-rounder Harry Ford.

Lastly, as always, the team opens up the mailbag and fields questions from fans.
