The 21-year-old is the heir-apparent to take over for veteran Jim Edmonds in centerfield for St. Louis in 2009 and is expected to make his big-league debut some time during this coming season. Along with closer Chris Perez and catcher Bryan Anderson, Rasmus was named to compete for Team USA this fall.
In this exclusive interview, granted the day before his team left for the IBAF Tournament in Taiwan, Rasmus discusses his 2007 season, his stint with Team USA and what his very bright future may hold.
Come back here to Scout.com for nine more exclusive Cardinals interviews straight from Team USA and the Arizona Fall League, including Anderson, Mark Riggins, Jarrett Hoffpauir, Mitchell Boggs, Jason Motte, Mark Hamilton, Luke Gregerson, Stuart Pomeranz and Amaury Marti.
