Oregon State University Assistant Baseball Coach Andy Jenkins joined Vinny and Haynie earlier to talk about the Orioles selection of Adley Rutschman.  Jenkins raved about Rutschman's abilities at catcher and said that nobody frames pitches better than him.  He also spoke very highly of Rutschman's clutchness and said in the bigger games he performs even better.

Jenkins thinks if the O's would have passed on Rutschman it would have been a big mistake.  Jenkins also talked about Rutschman's former teammate and current Oriole minor leaguer Cadyn Grenier.  He raved about Grenier's defensive ability and thinks his bat will continue to get better.
