Coming off a season in which he hit .295/.464/.819 with 15 hrs and 11 stolen bases between High A and AA, Stephen Piscotty continued to build his case as one of baseball’s top third base prospects with a solid showing in the AFL. The 22-year-old St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguer’s prodigious performance carried over to the fall showcase, as he batted .371 in 23 games while stealing 7 bases in the compressed schedule. Link.
As noted by Daniel Solzman of Redbird Rants, Piscotty entered the offseason as the Cardinals’ #7-ranked-prospect, but that status may soon rise based on his combined performance in the regular season and AFL.
Piscotty was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 45th round of the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft from Amador Valley HS (Pleasanton, CA) and theSt. Louis Cardinals in the 1st round (36th) of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft from Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA).
