Katz was the first of six middle infielders signed by the Cardinals organization in their first 20 picks and one of two assigned to the State College Spikes of the short-season New York-Penn League. The Cards made it clear they want Katz to focus on being a second baseman.
In the following exclusive interview, Katz discussed his senior season, his close friendship with former Cape Cod League teammate and current Springfield outfielder James Ramsey, his whirlwind last month and much more.
Upcoming interviews to include minor league field coordinator Mark DeJohn and a multi-part series with scouting director Dan Kantrovitz.
