Cardinals To Sign Stephen Piscotty

The Cardinals‬ will sign supplementary first-round pick Stephen Piscotty to a contract within the hour, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via Twitter).  The 36th overall pick will receive a $1.4MM bonus, right in line with the recommended value for that selection.

The Stanford product will report to the Cardinals' Quad Cities affiliate where he will be the starter at third base, Goold tweets.  Piscotty has shown the ability to hit for average but many scouting reports note that his power potential isn't on the same level.

  1. Good to have him in the fold. Now get Williams and corner the future 3rd base market! This guy looks like he could be a RH Matt Carpenter, a good hitter with some power that can play the corner OF and infield positions.

      Was really upset to see this guy get drafted before the Phils had a chance to get him. They have compared him to an Alex Gordon type

  2. Would Piscotty be in our top ten?

    •  Most likely not, Wacha should and Kelly might come in at #10 if he gets off to good start. Piscotty falls in 11-15 range in a very strong system.
