Gotta admit as the time for the Cardinals to pick got closer, it was crazy to see two names still on the board. The Royals took all the drama out of the equation, however, and St. Louis scored the steal of the night.
Kansas City snagged Brady Singer who somehow fell to 18th, and that left the Cards to miraculously take the top power hitter in Arizona high school 3B Nolan Gorman.
There was no question that the Birds on the Bat would get an impact player this year, but this was an absolute stunner. Gorman was not projected to fall out of the top 10 and routinely was in discussion as the first HS bat to hear his name called.
Simply put his game is power from the left side and a whole lot of it. Don’t be shocked to see him move rapidly up the system as a guy that St. Louis can build around for a long time. Gorman will remind many under the Arch of Scott Rolen patrolling the hot corner, so the only question is what it takes to sign him.
