STEPHEN PISCOTTY RUMORS

Don’t Sleep on Stephen Piscotty

There was much debate in the preseason regarding Matt Carpenter repeating his power surge and the tantalizing mix of speed and power in Randal Grichuk. But steady Stephen Piscotty continues to fly below the radar in fantasy and in baseball as a productive member of the Cardinals.  It is easy to overlook Stephen Piscotty, as St. Louis is presently first in baseball in home runs and...

Cardinals want Piscotty to concentrate on right field

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) There's a crowd of candidates to play first base for the St. Louis Cardinals. More than enough that budding star Stephen Piscotty can concentrate on mastering right field. Earlier this week, manager Mike Matheny said getting Piscotty work at first base was ''not a huge priority.'' ''Right now I just don't see it as being the best use of his time,'' Matheny...

Stephen Piscotty: Mr. Versatile

A legitimate claim can be made that the Cardinals would not have fared as well as they did in the 2015 season’s last couple of months without the stunning emergence of praised prospect Stephen Piscotty. Piscotty is in a class of his own on the team, being the only player with such defensive versatility and a heavy bat. Stephen was drafted out of Stanford University in 2012 as...

Where Stephen Piscotty Got the Power

Going into the season, Stephen Piscotty was projected to be a contact and patience guy because that’s what he’d been in the minor leagues for the most part.

Can Stephen Piscotty make an immediate impact for the Cardinals?

Why Isn’t Stephen Piscotty a First Baseman?

The last 24 hours have been a wild time for the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans. First, the major league team was swept in the second of two Tuesday games in Chicago by the upstart Cubs. Then Twitter was abuzz because the organization’s top position player prospect, Stephen Piscotty, had been pulled from Triple-A Memphis’ lineup amid speculation he was being promoted to St...

Piscotty turning heads with performance during second trip to Cards' camp

JUPITER, Fla. -- Although this is only the second spring training for Cardinals prospect Stephen Piscotty, he knew enough about camp that he knew he needed to be ready. Easing into the action wouldn't work. He wanted to come in and impress his bosses enough that he would stay with the big league club longer than he did last season when he lasted only two games and went 0-for-3. Also...

A Quick Second With Stephen Piscotty

Since being chosen by the Cardinals with the 36th pick in the 2012 Draft, Stephen Piscotty has blazed a path through the Cardinals organization and become perhaps the most heralded bat in the system not named Oscar Taveras. After a season where he hit .295 with 15 home runs, 23 doubles and drove in 59 runs in 112 games between Palm Beach and Springfield, he truly took a step onto...
