Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin goes national to talk debut of No. 2 prospect

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin went on the Jim Rome Show on Thursday morning to discuss the debut of the club’s No. 2 prospect, A.J. Puk, who faced three New York Yankees in the eighth inning.

Puk, the No. 6 pick in the 2016 draft, was given a standing ovation before his name was even announced. After entering, he retired one batter — on a tough catch by second baseman Jurickson Profar — and allowed one walk and one hit.
