Re: 2013 Arizona Fall League 


I'd like to see Martinez in this league to make up for spring training and his bullpen stints.

 

Ramsey would be another one and Taveras too since he's missed so much time due to health.

 

O'Neill would be an interesting OF addition also, just to see what he could do

Pham would be interesting too, if his shoulder is healed by then.

A catcher like Perez or Rasmus would be nice just to see how bare the cupboard is at that position.

Jordan Swagerty would be a fine pitching addition too since he return was delayed so much.

Re: 2013 Arizona Fall League 


Most pitchers who miss significant time with injury during the minor league season usually are sent to go to the Arizona Fall League to make up those innings in the fall like Blair and Whiting last year.. I could see the Cardinals sending Jenkins to get more innings under his belt with timed missed with the shoulder injury if healthy and get exposure.

Well, Martinez only has 69 innings pitched this year, while Swagerty has just 10 innings.

Seem like good candidates.

Jenkins is a little young I would think.

Taveras was 19 years old when he went but as far as development Jenkins would behind when Taveras went. Be a good test for Jenkins.

Not that they couldn't repeat, but O'Neill played in the AFL last year while Swagerty and Taveras competed in 2011.

I didn't realize O'Neill played last year. I knew about Swags and OT though.

DG was asked in his chat today about some potential candidates for the AFL this fall. His response.

"Taveras is one. He could go as a priority center fielder once the Cardinals find out what their options are for position priority players. Stoppelman has to go, right? What a season he's had, and it would be helpful to see him against that level of talent. Petrick make sense as another pitching prospect going out there. Wonder if James Ramsey might get the nod as another position player."

Later was asked if Jenkins was a candidate with time missed due to injury. His response.

"Yes. That is something that teams do with their AFL players. They give injured players those added innings. It would also be interesting to see what Jenkins does against that level of talent, if given the chance."

Piscotty and Jon Rodriguez are good candidates in my opinion.

Good thinking on Piscotty. It could benefit to get that exposure.

Would STL minor-league players, who will be eligible for this year's Rule 5 draft, be given consideration for the AFL?  Any examples of this happening in the past?

Yes. Kevin Siegrist last fall. He pitched in the AFL and was added to the 40-man before the draft.

A few years back, Brian Broderick was in the same situation, but was not protected. Washington took him in the Rule 5 after he showed well in the AFL.

Yes, many potential rule 5 eligible are known to been sent to give the organization a last impression on whether they'll be protected or not. In the Cardinals case curious as to why they didn't send Hooker.

Re: 2013 Arizona Fall League 


I was hoping Jordan Swagerty would make this list since he's already 24. What did he go on the disabled list for last month?

Good to see the 2012 draftees leaving a mark. Piscotty and Ramsey we know about, but Wilson is an interesting choice. He signed for just $20,000 in the 10th round last year and has been pretty great this season with 18 homeruns and good plate dicipline. He has played primarily 2B, but has been used all over since his Palm Beach promotion. Stoppelman also was a 2012 draft choice (24th round)

That is turning into a heck of a draft.

Wacha
Ramsey
Piscotty
Wisdom
C. Kelly
Cooney
Wilson
Stoppelman

I had Bean in my list, but then looked up his stats and removed him from my "intriguing" list.

Bean, Barraclough, Gonzalez, and Foody have been pretty terrible so far, not unexpectedly though, since the draft is often a crapshoot.

His injury is undisclosed.

Greg Garcia would have been a great candidate since they don't seem likely to call him up to the majors.

Particularly over Jacob Wilson. Maybe he can be a once a week guy? When do they announce those two players?

Is there a way to find the list of players sent to the AFL in previous years by the Cardinals? I'd like to see that history.
