2017 Prospects

St. Louis Cardinals Top 10 Prospects

by Jeffrey Paternostro and BP Prospect Staff


Last year's Cardinals list

The State of the System: It’s a pretty good system. A little better than middle-of-the-pack. It’s also difficult to sum up pithily here.

The Top Ten

  1. RHP Alex Reyes
  2. RHP Sandy Alcantara
  3. SS Delvin Perez
  4. C Carson Kelly
  5. CF Magneuris Sierra
  6. RHP Dakota Hudson
  7. RHP Luke Weaver
  8. OF Harrison Bader
  9. RHP Jordan Hicks
  10. RHP Jack Flaherty

The Big Question: Who is the next beneficiary of the Cardinals Devil Magic?

Ranking Cardinals prospects is a fool’s errand. Aledmys Diaz appears nowhere on last year’s list. Matt Carpenter never ranked higher than eighth.Tommy Pham’s only appearance on a BP Prospect list was penned by Kevin Goldstein (he checked in at #18). Jedd Gyorko was basically one more bad season away from being legally declared dead so his surviving relatives could finally collect the insurance money. They even gainfully employed a Hampshire College graduate in work that didn’t involve collecting lost tennis balls and turning them into art or something.
