Milwaukee Brewers fan favorite Rowdy Tellez is a regular on Foul Territory TV where former Brew Crew catcher Erik Kratz is one of the hosts. On their Monday afternoons show he was introduced as a superstar two-way player, discussed some details about his appearance on the pitching mound, and revealed some trash talk that was said the first time he met Josh Donaldson.
Rowdy Tellez talks about his pitching performance and trash talking with his newest Milwaukee Brewers teammate Josh Donaldson.
According to Rowdy Tellez there was some build up that he would get an appearance on the pitching mound at some point this season. When the Brewers went up 16-1 against the Miami Marlins manager Craig Counsell informed Rowdy Tellez in the seventh inning that it was his time. He immediately proceeded to go steal a glove from Wade Miley and sit on the bench to get in the zone.
A few other things mentioned regarding his pitching performance was that he contemplated running out to the bullpen to warm up. He did end up deciding against it for integrity of the game purposes, but one of his teammates did make a joke to him about watching out for the outfield fence.
Another topic of conversation was Josh Donaldson. Rowdy Tellez ended up sharing a story about the first time he saw him in the club house and the trash talk that ensued between the two after Rowdy wanted Josh to introduce himself to his new teammates.
