Audio Podcast: Jeff Lyman Interview

BravesCenter's Bill Shanks talks with Jeff Lyman, Atlanta's second round pick in the 2005 draft.

The Braves were thrilled to draft Jeff Lyman in the second round of the 2005 draft. He's a big, six-foot-four, 225-pound right-handed pitcher out of Monte Vista High School in Alamo, California.

Last year in his first pro season, Lyman pitched eight games (seven starts) in the Gulf Coast League and was 0-3 with a 4.24 ERA. He allowed 41 hits in 34 innings, walked only seven, and struck out 28. Now he's fighting for a job in Rome's starting rotation.
