On Episode 13, the LumberKings welcome new additions to the roster (4:20), including 2019 MLB Draft picks Peyton Burdick and Evan Edwards. In the aftermath of losing their top starting pitchers to midseason promotions, the remaining arms have to adjust to different roles (5:50).

Our guest this week, pitcher Tyler Mitzel (8:15), talks his insanely good changeup (10:15), coming out of South Dakota (16:00) and what the Marlins preach to all their minor league pitchers.

Enjoy Episode 13 of A-Ball!

The 6-foot-4 Mitzel joined the Marlins as an undrafted free agent last summer. His earned run average with Clinton has gradually improved from 4.15 in April to 2.89 in May to 2.00 in June.
