On this week’s installment of Podding the Red Sox: A BloggingtheRedSox.com Podcast, I am joined by Red Sox area scout Danny Watkins, who covers Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee for the team.
Among the topics Danny and I discussed are what it’s like to be an amateur scout for a Major League Baseball team, how the scouting landscape has changed in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, what it was like scouting Mookie Betts out of high school, how preparations are being made for the 2021 draft, how it is scouting Vanderbilt University’s Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter, and much more!
The episode is available to listen to on iTunes and Spotify, among other platforms.
Thanks to Danny for taking some time out of his busy scouting schedule to have a conversation with me.
Thank you for listening and we will see you next time! Please make sure to subscribe and leave a five-star review if you can!
