Continuing the same narrative, St. Louis added two more college players in rounds five and six. The Cardinals added to their pitching depth first, selecting LHP Connor Thomas with the 155th pick. He was not listed in MLB’s top 200 although the Georgia Tech hurler has a strong feel for his craft.
Thomas has a very good chance of throwing to the next selection as early as this month one would think. Florida Atlantic catcher Pedro Pages heard his name called in the 6th round and offers the complete package to his next assignment. It has been an impressive haul so far with four picks left in the money rounds.
