In this week's Get to Know 'Em podcast, Seth talked to prospect Travis Blankenhorn about his powerful 2019 season, his goals and his high school days as a three-sport athlete. Also, we talk to outfielder LaMonte Wade about his season, getting called up to the big leagues, getting hurt and contributing mightily in September.Travis Blankenhorn was a star, three-sport athlete in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, growing up. We discuss the sports he played and how good he was in all three sports. He had a very nice 2019 season and was named the 2019 Twins Daily Minor League All Star second baseman. He spent three weeks in Ft. Myers before being promoted to AA Pensacola where he hit 18 doubles and 18 home runs in 93 games. He is a candidate to be added to the Twins 40-man roster in November. He also talked about what analytics and statistics were most important to him. We discuss it all with him.



LaMonte Wade was called up in late June and made his big-league debut in late June. He returned about a week later and got hurt. He rehabbed and was brought back to the Twins on September 1st. He played nearly every day for the Twins down the stretch. We talked about all of that, plus there was a section about his beloved Baltimore Ravens and their big match up coming up on Sunday night.
