Rangers Today Baseball Podcast dips into the Arizona Fall League with Cody Freeman
FORT WORTH — Timing is everything, and the Rangers Today Baseball Podcast was in the Roxo Media House studio Friday when the Rnagers announced that Bruce Bochy was their new manager.
So, the show starts with a bang as John Moore and I discuss the news and what all of it means, including the potential positive impact on free agency.
Hopefully the news doesn’t overshadow what was a fun conversation with catching prospect Cody Freeman, who is playing (and playing very well) in the Arizona Fall League. He has an interesting story after being drafted as an infielder in 2019 in the fourth round.
His older brother, Tyler, is a top Cleveland prospect, but the Guardians are keeping him on the infield.
Cody said he was all for giving catching a go when the Rangers came to him with the idea. He appears to be quick learner, and he’s getting a solid test with the Surprise Saguaros. Freeman provides an update on 2022 first-rounder Kumar Rocker, who is pitching in the fall league.
Get to know Freeman, and remember the name. He could be at Double A Frisco to open next season.
