The Cardinal Nation’s Brian Walton is joined by scouting analyst Blake Newberry for a weekly discussion of St. Louis Cardinals news, with a focus on player development and the minor leagues. 

Our Wednesday podcasts are quick hitting and timely, covering a short list of current topics in 15-20 minutes. More information on everything we discuss can be found in articles here at The Cardinal Nation. 

This week, Brian and Blake review how the Cardinals finished spring training by the numbers, highlight three prospects recently cut from camp and recap the six-man Opening Day injured list. Next is the outfield, with Victor Scott and Michael Siani in center, with Brendan Donovan and Alec Burleson in left. Pitching topics include strengths of Matthew Liberatore in the pen and Zack Thompson in the rotation, plus Rule 5 reliever Ryan Fernandez. To close, key minor league names and dates are outlined.
