This week brings Jordan Comadena to the podcast, a former DI utility player in the Big Ten and a minor leaguer in the Houston Astros system. Jordan currently serves as the bullpen catcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Technically he is a member of the coaching staff but he is just a few minor miracles and a coincidence or two away from getting on the game field.
Jordan talks about his job as the ultimate role player. His contributions to the Pirates directly impact every game as he works with the pitchers in the bullpen, participates in meetings and scouting and brings that ‘wherever they need me’ approach that served him well in his playing days as a utility man at Purdue University. Jordan dishes on the life in the big leagues, travel, catching big leaguers, and life behind the practice dish.
