The St. Louis Cardinals are heading into the 2013 season relying on Rafael Furcal to remain healthy all season. General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny pushed all of their chips to the middle of the table, betting that Furcal's elbow is healthy enough after rehab alone, hoping that he can be the Cardinals' everyday starting shortstop.
The Cardinals did very little to acquire any insurace in case Furcal went down and missed time, which is very likely considering his checkered injury-ridden past. Now, it looks as though Mozeliak is taking some action and may be looking to acquire some insurance in the form of Ronny Cedeno.

In the first of a four-part series, we highlight the top 15 St. Louis Cardinals prospects from the Minor League Baseball Analyst with the details as to why they’re ranked where they are.
Earlier today, John Sickels released his farm system rankings and had the Pittsburgh Pirates fifth overall. He also had the St. Louis Cardinals first overall. The Cardinals seem to be the consensus top farm system this year. I haven’t received my Baseball America 2013 Prospect Handbook yet, but I’ve already seen that the Cardinals ranked first in their preliminary rankings.
