    I cannot remember us having this many position prospects. The Cards are usually known for their pitching.

    If you look at the Card’s pitching depth without Flaherty it is somewhat thin. I don’t have much faith in Hicks or Woodford. Liberatore needs more seasoning plus Memphis has its own problems right now. I can see the organization stretching out one of its relievers to help out the situation. There are a couple of good candidates.

    I’m hoping that Gorman can cut down on his K/rate… Nootbaar’s slow start may land him behind Burleson on the depth chart and next OF up.

    I’ll be curious where the new draftees slot into the top 50. Will that be updated this month, or will more time be needed to make changes?

    I’d also be interested to know where everyone would slot our new Cards after being added to the system. Typically the first 3-5 picks from any draft make it into the top 50, but with no comp pick this year it could be as few as 2.

    For me, this wasn’t a very exciting draft so it’s hard for me to place some of these guys. I’d probably slot Hjerpe in after Burleson and Tink Hence and in front of Mejia at #12. Then I’d probably place Mautz only a few slots lower, maybe just below Connor Thomas at #16. Then Pete Hansen goes somewhere around Austin Love (albeit as a different kind of pitcher) in the 30ish range. That’s probably it for top 50 guys from this draft for me. It will be interesting to see if the Cards’ strategy pays off.

    stlcard25 – What are you thinking their strategy was?

    It seems like player development will be more important with this draft, as many college players posted lackluster numbers.

    We’ll just to have to wait and see since this is a tricky topic even for the experts and IMO we’ll probably see different rankings with different names.

    Does Rajcic make the top 59 due to well over slot we paid him?

    Top 59? Probably given how weak our system depth is.

    FYI, I asked our two draft analysts to place the 2022 draftees into TCN’s top 50. I am doing the same. We will show readers the individual votes and use the average for the new rankings. Of course we will provide our thinking as to why we did what we did. Something for subscribers to look forward to this week.

    Of course, the community is welcome to have your own discussion as well. Carry on.

    That’s one of my favorite articles usually…just to see how the different views fit together. I’m looking forward to that.

    It looks to me like they went with the lefty funk early on and then settled into college performers who generally are higher on projection than performance. It feels like the kind of draft that could look very solid in 2 years, or pretty much barren.

    Top 2 givens…. Hansen may see the bottom of the list #28 – #30. Maybe more interesting to see who drops out.

    There’s a new MLB ranking of Cardinals prospects. Moises Gomez is still ranked all the way down at number 30 (Is it because of his 35% strikeout rate?). Julio Rodriguez is not in the top 30. Alec Willis moves up to number 15. Paniagua moves up to number 13. Seventeen-year-old Jonathan Mejia moves all the way up to number 10 (His coaches must really like him). There are a lot of new names in this ranking.

    Highest jumpers are Paniagua 17 spots up (#30 to #13) and Graceffo 16 spots (#19 to #3). Those are two gigantic leaps.
