Tonight’s interview is with new Sounds outfielder Khris Davis, who went 1-for-3 and scored the game-winning run last night in his first game with the Sounds. He joined the club from Double-A Huntsville where he batted .383 in 44 games, and he’s combined for a 14-game hitting streak.

The reason for the “Getting the Read” portion of the title is that I learned Davis is an avid reader, not something you typically hear from baseball players (at least during the season).

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds reliever Donovan Hand, who owns a 1.40 ERA over his last 16 appearances. He discusses his upcoming start on Sunday in Game 2 of a doubleheader, what it would mean for the Sounds to get to .500 (they’re nine under) after a rough start to the season, how much enjoyed seeing his pal, Jim Henderson, make his major league debut on Thursday night and what things are like for a Triple-A player surrounding the July 31 trade deadline.

Tonight’s interview is with Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, a Sound from 2010 who returns to Nashville for two games to continue his six-game rehab assignment for Milwaukee. Lucroy has been out since late May with a hand injury, and the Brewers hope to have him back by Thursday when they return from Philadelphia.

In this chat, Lucroy discusses what the rehab process has been like from his surgery, whether he thinks the Brewers are still in the race,  how difficult it has been for him to watch the team struggle while he’s been out, the impact that Martin Maldonado has made with the Brewers and the comparison between Lucroy’s 2010 season and Maldonado’s 2012 season.

Here is this week’s installment of “Mondays with Mike” with Sounds manager Mike Guerrero. Among the topics he discusses: the Sounds’   great pitching and defense lately and this season, the team’s continued struggle to score runs consistently, whether or not he considers right-hander Mark Rogers the most improved player on the Sounds this year, the job that catcher Dayton Buller has done lately and whether or not he feels the Sounds are holding up as the team has passed the 100-game mark for the year.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds first baseman Sean Halton, to whom his teammates refer as “Cheesy.” Among other topics, Halton discusses his great hitting in New Orleans this year (8-for-18, 2 HRs), what he thinks about his season — his first at Triple-A — so far, his upcoming return to his hometown of Fresno in a couple weeks, his love of football (namely the San Francisco 49ers) and his high school baseball career that included some playing time at shortstop (keep in mind Halton is 6’5, 265 lbs.).
