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. But this offseason, he had a plan, and he changed his approach and mechanics in order to be a better player. Perhaps the projections going forward are a little light, given the changes he’s made. Preseason Steamer projections...

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...
