Spring training offers a preview of what the 2014 season holds for the teams around Major League Baseball. It also gives a glimpse of the future of the organizations as prospects take the field and show off their talents in front of the big league coaching staffs.
The Cardinals have their share of prospects, and the folks over at Cardinals Farm do a great job of keeping fans up to date on the various players and their production. Recently, they identified the top prospects in the organization. Their top five were as follows:
- Oscar Taveras
- Carlos Martinez
- Kolten Wong
- Stephen Piscotty
- Marco Gonzales
With that in mind, it is time to grade each of those prospects on their production to this point in spring training. As Opening Day draws near, the report cards are starting to be handed out.
Let's take a look and see who's making the grade.
