Tommy Pham is rehabbing in the Minors, and his home run robbery is definitely big league ready
Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham played 52 games with the Cards' last season, hit a pinch-hit home run in his first postseason at-bat ever, and then made the roster out of camp for the 2016 season, but he's been out since Opening Day with a strained left oblique. As of Sunday, he was nearing the end of his rehab stint in the Minors.
And it certainly looks like he's ready:
Pham was playing center field for the Double-A Springfield Cardinals against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on Sunday, clinging to a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning, when Naturals DH Frank Schwindel sent a ball over his head and out of the park. Or, it would've gone out of the park, had Pham not pulled off some big league-caliber home run robbery:
The Cardinals kept their lead and ended up winning, 5-2 -- just like their MLB counterparts. And even though they were hundreds of miles away, we bet Pham's Major League teammates would've been pretty jazzed with his catch.
