This past week, I continued my top 50 St. Louis Cardinals prospects countdown with prospects 36-40 on Tuesday and 31-35 on Thursday. Here is a recap of those prospects and some of my personal thoughts on a few of the players.
40. Nick Thompson
39. Andrew Morales
38. Jonathan Rodriguez
37. Xavier Scruggs

33. Vaughn Bryan
The next wave of prospects features a couple of 2014 draftees along with three veterans of the St. Louis Cardinals farm system. Another good mix of prospects is in store for you today.

Thompson, the Cardinals 8th round pick in 2014, is the epitome of the Cards’ draft in ’14 as the Cardinals selected all collegiate bats and took players who can control the...

With Allen Craig and Matt Adams on the major league roster, there isn’t much need to rush any prospects or to have the next superstar ready. With that said, you will see that my top 5 is probably backwards of what it should be. It...
