Welcome to the fifth episode of the Call to the Pen flagship podcast! New episodes Monday and Wednesday. Today we talk about Brycer Harper’s latest injury, a Mike Trout trade, and the Astros getting feisty with their GM over a lack of moves at the deadline.

In today’s episode, host and Call to the Pen contributor Jonathan Platek discusses the possibility of a Mike Trout trade. Also discussed is a column from Brendan Dlubala about the Astros, specifically Josh Reddeck, getting upset with GM Jeff Luhnow about the lack of additions since the trade deadline has come and gone.

Jon also discusses the serious nature of Bryce Harper’s knee injury, and breaks down how the slugger’s intermittent health throughout his career may be a warning sign for general managers looking to give Harper a mammoth free agent contract following the 2018 regular season.
