As we continue the countdown of the St. Louis Cardinals top prospects of the 2013, the list starts to become more difficult to rank and compile. With so many good prospects lined throughout the organization at various positions, it is difficult to decipher who falls down the list. Not every prospect can be ranked first.
Such is the case for No. 7 in our ranking, which happens to be first baseman Matt Adams, a player who has already spent time in St. Louis.
Matt Adams, 1B, 24 (will turn 25 August 31)
2012 Highest Level: MLB St. Louis Cardinals
2012 AAA Stats: 67 games, .329 Avg, 18 HR, 50 RBI
2013 Predicted Highest Level: MLB St. Louis Cardinals

One of the men most responsible for the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2011 World Series championship is currently locked in a battle with the team to be paid more like the star he is becoming, but this isn’t the type of battle that should raise serious concerns.
David Freese is one of the most talented young position players the Cardinals have, and he has plenty of potential to grow...
It has been widely repeated that the St. Louis Cardinals have not participated in an arbitration hearing since 1999. At that time, they faced off against pitcher Darren Oliver over $600,000 and won. The arbiters are bound to select either the player’s number or the team’s other, with no compromise. Oliver – who is still in the majors 14 years later – had to accept $3.55...
As is the case every spring, I scan the Florida broadcast plans of the St. Louis Cardinals and their varied opponents and combined their schedule plans in one place right here.
Spring training is a contrast to the regular season, when almost every game is televised and every one is available on the radio (as well as via the various internet, cable and satellite carriers).
The St. Louis Cardinals recently came to terms with left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski to a one year contract which will allow the two sides to avoid arbitration. This leaves the Cardinals with just one key artbitration-eligible player without a contract in David Freese.
According to a report over the weekend from Hall of Fame writer Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch...
The St. Louis Cardinals and left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski avoided arbitration by settling on a one-year, $1.1 million contract on Friday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Rzepczynski, 27, requested $1.3 million and the Cardinals offered $900,000 in exchanging arbitration figures before deciding on a deal. Rzepczynski can earn another $25,000 if he makes 70 appearances...
The talk of the St. Louis Cardinals’ offseason has been the strength of its pitching staff. A particularly exciting component is the potential of the bullpen, which has a chance to be amongst the best in all of baseball. However, there has been one part of the equation that has largely gone unconsidered in most discussion, and this is Fernando Salas. It is a pivotal season for...
