First, they look at some of the biggest prospect hauls in trades from past Winter Meetings, with Jim and Jonathan declaring a winner for each deal. After touching on the first-ever Draft Lottery, the trio previews the Rule 5 Draft by looking at the best picks made over the past decade.

    Rookies & Rosters

    Rookies & Rosters

    On the latest edition of the Pipeline Podcast, Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff begin looking ahead to 2023 and trying to project next season's top rookies. Jim and Jonathan draft five prospects each based on where they think they'll finish in Rookie of the Year balloting, and they have Orioles infielder Gunnar Henderson and Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll as the favorites in each league. Next up is a discussion of the decisions teams had to make finalizing their 40-man rosters, including surprises added or left off. They conclude by double-dipping into the listener mailbag, as they ponder where the Padres' Jackson Merrill ranks among shortstop prospects after an impressive Arizona Fall League, then identify their favorite prospects who aren't highly ranked.

The rest of the episode looks at the Arizona Fall League, with Twins prospect Austin Martin joining the pod and the trio recapping the Fall Stars Game and looking ahead to the final week of the AFL season before answering a mailbag question about Astros prospect Zach Daniels.

    An Inside Job

    An Inside Job

    On the latest Pipeline Podcast, Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff focus on the Arizona Fall League. The developmental circuit featured a game Monday with a team hitting not one but two inside-the-park home runs, something that hasn't happened in the Majors since 1986. The guys discuss the prospects involved (Braves infielder Cal Conley, Orioles outfielder Heston Kjerstad) as well as the AFL's Hitter of the Week, Twins shortstop Austin Martin, and the Pitcher of the Week, Tigers left-hander Joey Wentz, who joins the show to discuss his season. They also talk about Cardinals lefty Connor Thomas' 10-strikeout game -- a rarity in the AFL -- and answer listener questions about infielders Jordan Lawlar (Diamondbacks) and Noelvi Marte (Reds).
