St Louis Cardinals Top 10 Prospects

Published

on


 

These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the St Louis Cardinals organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.

 

Check out the NL Central Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Alex Reyes SP

Going into 2017, Reyes was my top pitching prospect. TJ ended his 2017, and will affect some of 2018. The most likely scenario is he isn’t right until 2019. Reyes has one of the best FB/Curve combos in the minors, going high 90’s to dropping to the 70’s on the curve. Control is the biggest question mark with Reyes, but he’s got the chance to be a SP2 in fantasy. I expect more relief than I do starts out of Reyes in ‘18, so many may get up in arms about it and fall off. I have him in multiple keepers and am holding tight.


2) Jack Flaherty SP

Flaherty is coming off a fantastic ‘17 minor league season that saw him reach the majors and start five games. Flaherty reminds me of a prototype pitcher. I wouldn’t call anything a major plus, but they are might be above average offerings with his FB, Curve, Slider and Change. He controls the zone well, and though he isn’t as much a SKO option that Reyes or Weaver are, he is going to contribute. I think he could sit as a SP3 in fantasy, but safer to assume a SP4.


3) Tyler O’Neill OF

O’Neill is a difficult evaluation all around. He smashes the ball and steals bases which we covet. I saw him in the AFL where he was also the leader of the all hustle team. The negative is his AVG continues to drop and his SKO’s continue to rise. In this new juiced ball era, I wouldn’t be surprised to see O’Neill succeed for fantasy owners. I’d comp him to Steven Souza who shares similar stat lines that I think O’Neill could produce. I am not bullish on him, but his skill set make it worth taking the chance around the top 100 area.


4) Harrison Bader OF

Bader just gets it done. He did a lot of what O’Neill did in ‘17 except hit for a better AVG. I don’t see Bader’s speed translating to the majors in a big way. I’d expect a handful of SB’s while most likely a decent return in power and RBI’s. The AVG is what will make or break Bader. If he can hit for .270 or higher I think he can be a OF5 or OF4 in fantasy in the future. If he dips in the .250 below range he’ll be fringe. I value Bader more than most, but he is massively blocked and you’ll want to monitor it.


5) Carson Kelly C

Kelly may end up being a better Baseball player than a fantasy player. Kelly has the power and bat to be above average at Catcher, but a lot of the maturation has been behind the plate rather than at it. He is going to find himself as a starter soon, I believe that. I just have cooled off on the thought that it might be a top 10 fantasy catcher at this point. I’m not saying it’s not going to happen, but I have tempered my expectations. He’s currently a top 5 fantasy prospect catcher, so draft accordingly.


6) Delvin Perez SS

7) Randy Arozarena OF 

8) Jose Adolis Garcia SS

9) Oscar Mercado OF 

10) Edmundo Sosa OF
