After a third straight hitless game on Tuesday, Nolan Gorman decided it was time to make a change. So he arrived to the park earlier than usual on Wednesday and started to put in extra time with Redbirds hitting coach Brandon Allen in the cage and watching tape. The 21-year-old

After the Cardinals were mostly done filling out their pitching pipeline on Day 3 of the 2021 MLB Draft (each of their picks between Rounds 12-15 was a college arm), they picked up an outfield bat in Elijah Cabell from Florida State in the 17th round at No. 511 overall.

Cards draft UCSB righty McGreevy in Rd 1

@zachsilver
July 11, 2021

Looking for a pitcher who “reeks of athleticism” and “almost has a phobia” of handing out walks? Then look no further than UC Santa Barbara right-hander Michael McGreevy. That’s the makeup of the player the Cardinals believe they found in their first-round selection (18th overall) in the 2021 MLB Draft

The path to the Majors is anything but linear. In an ideal world, each first-round pick would make his Major League debut just a couple of years after being drafted. That happens at times, but the reality is things are rarely so simple. The Cardinals selected Nick Plummer in the
