A chance to pitch in the major leagues is all of the sudden a lot closer for Gaylord’s Brody Rodning. The hard throwing lefthander, late last week, was called to the Toronto Blue Jays’ alternate site.
Due to the COVID-related delay in Minor League seasons this spring, alternate training sites are being used for the second year in-a-row.
Teams will send Triple-A-caliber players to these alternate site facilities which are in close proximity to the Major League parks in case an early season call-up is needed. Until the Minor League season starts next month, only players at alternate sites are eligible to be called to the Major League teams.
Rodning was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2017.
