For the first time since the Future Projection Podcast has been around, Ben and Carlos are able to talk about actual minor league baseball. The two talk about a number of prospects who have gotten off to strong starts this season, including Wander Franco, Julio Rodriguez, Vidal Brujan, CJ Abrams, Alek Thomas and many others. Prior to that conversation, the two discuss why Oklahoma high school righthander Jackson Jobe is the top prep pitcher in the class and see how he stacks up with recent top-of-the-class high school righthanders like Mick Abel and Quinn Priester. The two wrap up the podcast in typical fashion, by taking listener questions including one about Mariners prospect George Kirby's newfound velocity—and how that changes his profile moving forward.
