    36. Jose Suarez
    The 16-year-old Dominican Summer League corner outfielder started the year disastrously by fanning 14 times in 33 trips to the plate, with just a single base on balls. From that point on, he hit .298/.459/.404 with 16 walks and 17 strikeouts. In the DSL that would equate to a 151 wRC+. Suarez only homered once, but he’s very young and well-built for future power at 6’2″ and 200 lbs.

    37. Noah Mendlnger
    Diminutive 2nd/3rd baseman signed as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia College And State University this year and was sent straight to Low-A, where he hit .275/.420/.363 in precisely 100 plate appearances. His two main virtues? He was just 20 years of age, which is perfect for Palm Beach. And he drew 18 walks against only 14 whiffs.

    38. Felix Taveras
    Other posters have brought up the 18-year-old DSL outfielder before, so not much for me to add. Except this, maybe: From August 11-October 2, Taveras batted a robust .322/.381/.621. He’s a year and a half older than Suarez, but IF he can retain most of his late-season power splurge as he moves through the minors, he’ll play in The Show.

    39. Maycol Justo
    Really, really diminutive shortstop (listed at 5’10” and just 141 lbs.) was 18 in the DSL this year and batted .331/.423/.404. But better than that, over his final 77 PA’s the switch-hitter struck out only 6 times versus 11 walks while posting a slash line of .355/.455/.452. There usually isn’t much reason to mention anyone over 17 in the DSL, but as we all know, the stateside Cardinal minor league teams were incredibly dreadful in 2021, and a big part of that was the nightmarish lack of pitching depth — and hitting depth. Hence, older DSL guys get atypical attention from me this year.

    40. Luis Pino
    Oh look, another DSL outfielder. (At least this one is 17.) Pino fanned 30% of the time and only stole one base all season, so there are red flags to be sure. But he did show some pop, with a .171 isolated slugging, and he is just 17. Fairly prominent bonus guy. Did I mention he’s 17?

    Thus far, 26 different players have tallied votes. As such, there are very few runaways…so with 45 minutes left to vote, each ballot could alter the course of history! So get your votes in, folks! We are still missing 5 or 6 folks who’ve previously voted.

    #41 – Connor Lunn, rhp 120 innings pitched at Peoria makes him stand out from the crowd.

    #42 – Pedro Pages, c Decent season at Peoria inspires hope for this 6th rounder.

    #43 – Carlos Soto, c Left handed hitter has improved in Mexican Winter League this year.

    #44 – Seth Elledge, rhp Was terrible in AAA and the bigs, but deserves consideration here for getting as far as he has. With a few tweaks, he could still be productive as a big league reliever.

    #45 – LJ Jones, of Only one year of minor league ball. Still has a chance to improve.

    41. Pedro Pages. A potentially above average hitting catcher. Of course in this org, if you can’t field, you won’t play. Knizner, I’m looking at you.

    42. Ali Sanchez. He and Pages are neck and neck. I wouldn’t mind running with him as the primary backup this year to see what we’ve got.

    43. Connor Lunn. As with his USC teammate Nootbaar, he’s been plodding along solidly so far. You have to like 9.0 K/9 to go with the 1.5 BB/9. He should start at Springfield.

    44. Edgar Escobar. He was definitely bit by a case of homeritis (32.4% HR/FB) at Springfield, but the combo of Ks (11.5/9), a decent walk rate (3.3/9) and WHIP (1.185) suggest that he may be in line for a better year in 2022. Of course his .237 BABIP allowed indicates he may have been lucky in some ways too. That’s an ok bet in the late rounds.

    45. Jacob Buchberger. I’ll go with the IF prospect here. He had a solid year with the bat; let’s see if he can build on it and move up in 2022. He maybe could be the Donovan of next year.

    46 Felix Taveras, put up promising numbers for DSL red. Hopefully he is brought to the States next year.
    47 Davila, nice debut, had a bout of wildness at Palm Beach, but pitched well for FCL Cards. Likely will begin 2022 at Palm Beach.
    48 Escobar, dropped quite a bit in my rankings from last year, but he has a li e arm. Hope he cuts down on long balls next year.should get to Memphis in 2022. Escobar would my bounce back candidate for next year.
    49 Perreira, had a very good year at Peoria. Control artist will pitch for Springfield next year.
    50 Leonardo Taveras, my 2nd bounce back candidate needs to improve control a la Pacheco. He has similar stuff to Pacheco, and should not have been as hard as he was in 2021. Maybe his troubles were the obvious lack of control coupled with tipping pitches

    I like Francisco, but he could be just another Nogowski. But time is on his side to add more power, as he is likely a first basemen/DH only.
