The Cardinals have the 13th pick in the June draft. The team's VP of scouting and player development, Jeff Luhnow, says "there's a real possibility that we go college pitcher." MLB.com's Matthew Leach admits that Aaron Crow will probably be gone. Ditto Brian Matusz. Christian Friedrich or Shooter Hunt remain possibilities.
Leach also suggests the Cardinals could take one of the many first baseman and move him to the outfield (Yonder Alonso, for example). Baseball America's May 16th mock draft projects the Cards will take Zach Collier, a high school outfielder.
