In a St. Louis Cardinals farm system that has been more successful in developing Major League pitchers in recent years, Memphis Redbirds outfielder Stephen Piscotty stands out as the organization’s top position player prospect still in the minors.
Starting his second season at Triple-A, the 24-year-old discusses the spring training that led him back to Memphis as well as the adjustments he is making. Of course, that includes the one adjustment that has garnered so much attention this year – an attempt to improve his power production.
To date in 2015, the right-handed hitter has played in just 14 games. On the just-completed road trip, the former Stanford star had 10 hits in 24 at-bats (.417), including five doubles, a home run, four walks, four runs scored and six RBI against only four strikeouts.
For the season, the right-handed hitter has improved his line to .269/.367/.519/.886.
