Steve Noworyta Interview

Last week at the Phillies' winter banquet stop in Lakewood, NJ, I had the opportunity to chat with the team's assistant director of minor league operations Steve Noworyta. Among the developmental topics we discussed, he commented on a pair of players who have had disciplinary issues, namely Stephen Malcolm (sent home by the Phils for the full 2011 season) and Zach Collier (50 game suspension related to banned substances, beginning at the start of the 2012 season). I also asked Noworyta about the recent rookie developmental program in Philadelphia, lefty pitcher Jesse Biddle as well as last year's draft class.

To hear the full interview, including some unfortunate background noise, check out the media player below.

Jay - Love the interviews, hate the music. Can't we just get to it? Thanks.

Ha- well, many of the snippets I use are my cousin playing. I'll let him know he's building a fan base here.

Also, it's 8-10 seconds so I can intro the piece with a few words. It's not like it's a drawn out 45-60 second introduction.

Thanks for checking in!
