The Cardinals are never really thought of as an organization that gets the elite prospects yet they keep churning out quality baseball players year after year. The same can be said for this crop of prospects coming through the system at the moment, though a few are higher ranked than most we’ve seen from them in a long time. One of the best things about the Cardinals’ prospects is that very few of them fail to be fantasy significant early in their careers due to their extensive player development system. It may have been a disappointing offense last year but there is help coming...soon.

 

Top Prospects In The System

Dylan Carlson

Carlson is a top-20 prospect in my book and as high as top-10 in others but either way, he is clearly the cream of the crop and for good reason with the grades you see...
