The Stash List

15th Edition

by Greg Wellemeyer


The Graduates: Brad Miller (Previous Rank: 17), Marcus Semien (18), Kolten Wong (19), Zach Granite (25)

It was a good week if you were waiting on middle-infield reinforcements. Miller and Semien both made it back before the All-Star break and Wong will be with the Cardinals for their first series coming out of it. Near-term playing time concerns for Semien were alleviated when the club sent Franklin Barreto back to Triple-A Nashville. We’ll have to wait and see if Wong fares as well. You’d assume Wong plays the keystone and pushes Matt Carpenter back to first base on most days, but I’m not sure how the Cards can completely take the bat out of Luke Voit’s hands considering his .316/.366/.684 introduction to Major League Baseball. Devil magic strikes again.

Granite got the call to Minnesota after a torrid stretch at Triple-A Rochester. His full-season line of .360/.412/.492 is impressive enough that there’s little need to cite a split, but it’s worth calling out his .441/.497/.615 triple-slash in 37 games from June on. That’s nice, but the speed is what you’re buying here. Granite swiped 56 bags a year ago, and while his pace has slowed at Triple A, he’s still nabbed 15 in 59 contests this season. A year-and-a-half long track record of running single-digit strikeout rates tells me he has a chance to put those wheels to work in the big leagues if he can find a path to semi-regular at-bats.
