FanGraphs Audio: Rob Kaminsky Discusses the Learning Curve

Episode 956

On this edition of FanGraphs Audio, David Laurila welcomes Rob Kaminsky, former first-rounder and St. Louis Cardinal.

The pair first spoke back in 2014, and while Kaminsky has put a lot of baseball under his belt since then, he is still just 27 years old. We hear stories about coming up with Carson Kelly, Alex Reyes, and previous podcast guest Cole Sulser, as well as how special it was for Kaminsky to make his major league debut in a Cardinals clubhouse with veterans like Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, and Paul Goldschmidt. We also get an anecdote about striking out a protesting Joey Votto, as well as appearing in a COVID-19 vaccine PSA.
