Following Bellinger, we talk about Frankie Montas and his surgery to remove a rib (similar to what Josh Beckett experienced a few years ago). He’s out 2-4 months. It’s not preferable, but he shouldn’t have his development stunted too much by the procedure.
Corey Seager finds himself second to none on two new prospect lists — MLB.com and Baseball America. He’s 4-for-4 with FanGraphs still to come. He might actually be the consensus top prospect in baseball.
To close, a limited Q&A session (probably because we recorded on a Saturday instead of Sunday).
