While the St. Louis Cardinals are in Boston ready to compete in their 19th World Series, a Baby Bird is excelling at the plate in the prestigious Arizona Fall League. On Tuesday it was announced that Cardinals’ farm hand Stephen Piscotty was the Player of the Week in the Arizona Fall League for the week of October 14th through October 20th. Piscotty, who began the AFL 1-for-11 in his first three games of Week 1, was a combined 11-for-18 in Week 2. That .611 average was best in the six team league. Along with the average, Piscotty also drove in three runs, scored four runs, and stole three bases. Piscotty is the Cardinals’ priority player, which means he plays at least every two out of three games. He has started most of his games in right field, but has been the designated hitter in a couple of games. He is third in the league with 5 stolen bases and tied for 11th in the league with a .364 batting average. The Cardinals’ first round pick (36th overall) in the 2012 draft out of Stanford has shot through the system, making it all the way to Double-A in 2013. Next season should be a big one for the slugger as he looks to possibly make his major league debut late in the season depending on injuries. The scouting report on Piscotty says that he will hit for a good average (.300 or above), has above average speed, and is still learning the outfield but has a cannon of an arm. I think the Cards would like to see an average of 15-20 home runs a season from him, which is something he needs to work on. Cards fans have seen what a good farm system will do for the big club as many of the stars of today were Baby Birds of yesterday. Piscotty has a very bright future ahead of him.
