Minor Accomplishments — Week 2

The early stages of the MiLB season have brought loads of speculation with regard to Oscar Taveras and Stephen Piscotty, and which prospect the Cardinals will summon to St. Louis first. I'd love to be able to provide some clarity to that question, but frankly, such call-ups depend on so many different proprietary factors, and it'd be pretty stupid of me say something like...

Stephen Piscotty is not Oscar Taveras, and it’s not close

COMMENTARY | Spring Training 2014 was a big one for Stephen Piscotty, he stuck around big league camp all the way to the end. He had a very promising spring in which some called for him to make the major league roster out of spring. On the flip side, Oscar Taveras saw just six at-bats with the big club due to lingering ankle issues (whether mentally or physically). With their spring...

Randal Grichuk homers in Redbirds debut, Mason Katz drives in three

Opening Day saw its ups and down in the Cardinals minor league system. The Memphis Redbirds, led by that awesome outfield of Randal Grichuk, Oscar Taveras, and Stephen Piscotty, looked very impressive. The Peoria Chiefs rallied from behind to put away Wisconsin, while Palm Beach struggled. Here are the highlights from Opening Day action: Memphis 10 Iowa 2 The Memphis Redbirds got...

Butler, Piscotty staying in Memphis as Cards work to finalize roster

When the Cardinals left Memphis on Friday night, shortstop Pete Kozma was still on the roster. But that doesn't mean he has made the team. The Cardinals still have a couple of days to finalize the 25-man roster in advance of Monday afternoon's season opener at Cincinatti. With second baseman Mark Ellis still dealing with a tender knee, there's a chance he could start...

Stephen Piscotty’s future with the St. Louis Cardinals

Spring training has been a largely unsurprising affair. The usual suspects are hitting well, and some players we expected to do well last season are making good this spring. The St. Louis Cardinals outfield looked to be pretty well settled after the trade of David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim California, USA.It was to be Bourjos in center every day, with Matt Holliday...

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...

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...

St. Louis Cardinals: Comparing Stephen Piscotty to a current Cardinals star

by Jared Simmons, @McGeeTriples The 2009 Amateur Draft will forever be remembered as one of the greatest in the history of the St. Louis Cardinals’ proud franchise. The Cardinals scored early and often throughout the draft. Hitting it big with their first round pick (Shelby Miller), third round pick (Joe Kelly), they scored again in the thirteenth (Matt Carpenter), 21st (Trevor...

Q&A: Stephen Piscotty, St. Louis Cardinals Outfield Prospect

The “pure hitter” label befits Stephen Piscotty. The St. Louis Cardinals’ outfield prospect hit .341 in his three seasons at Stanford, and won a Cape Cod League batting title in 2011. He’s continued to produce line drives since being taken 36th overall in the 2012 draft. Piscotty is coming off a productive first full professional season. Swinging from the right side, the...
