Cards Farm Director on State of the System

St. Louis Cardinals Director of Player Development Gary LaRocque discusses a wide variety of topics in an exclusive interview.

While most of the affiliates in the St. Louis Cardinals system were off for Major League Baseball’s All-Star break earlier this week, Director of Player Development Gary LaRocque moved to cover a club still in action, the State College Spikes of the New York-Penn League.

With short-season play well underway, the stop offered an ideal opportunity to check in with the farm director about his views of the 2016 to date as well as to pose a number of questions about a wide variety of topics including promotions – past and present, managing innings, status of rehabbers, plans for the fall and much more.

The 13-minute exclusive interview follows.
