Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.
On the 33rd episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. and Bryan walk us through a couple of recent catcher extensions … the Braves snag another year of service on veteran Kurt Suzuki while the Reds add an extra year of control to Tucker Barnhart! With this as a springboard, the guys discuss the recent spate of catcher concussions, and R.J.'s recent research into how organizations (and players) are working to find a solution to a very real problem. Of course, this means plenty of talk about the other Braves catcher, the talented and insightful Tyler Flowers. (Plus, Bryce Harper is back! Hooray!)
