|Stephen Piscotty on speed dial |

(3/28/14) Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty impressed team officials during camp, and could be on speed dial, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Piscotty hit .342 this spring, but was sent down. With prospect Oscar Taveras dealing with injuries, Piscotty could emerge as the first outfielder the team calls upon this year. Piscotty was a first round pick by the club in 2012.

(3/13/14) Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty had his first multi-hit game of the spring Wednesday against the Mets, recording a double and triple. He finished with two runs, one RBI and one walk as well.
Piscotty has recorded a hit in three straight games and has five RBI in that span. For the spring, he is batting .389 (7 for 18) with a .429 on-base percentage, .778 slugging percentage, 1.206 OPS and six RBI in 11 games.
"He’s making us notice him," manager Mike Matheny said of the 2012 first-round pick, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He’s patient. He knows his zone. He’s shown that nice, easy swing with a lot of power to it."
|Perhaps as a makeup for Allen Craig, who was overlooked throughout his minor-league career, the scouts are all about Stephen Piscotty -- a 2012 draft pick who shows similar ability. Piscotty projects to hit .290 or better with his high-contact approach and has demonstrated enough power to hit 20-plus home runs from year to year. At age 23, he should move quickly and had no trouble adjusting to Double-A following a midseason promotion. Of course, he still has to make that final leap to the majors, and with the Cardinals already struggling to create an opening for Oscar Taveras, he may not get that chance until 2015. Whenever the door opens for him, though, he'll be ready. With a short timetable and minimal bust potential, Piscotty figures to be a popular pick in dynasty leagues even though his upside isn't quite on the same level as other prospects.
