RHP Edwar Colina (LoA Cedar Rapids – Minnesota) 20 years old

HiA Mentions – Starters
 
LHP Wennington Romero (HiA Daytona – Cincinnati) 20 years old

RHP Trevor Stephan (HiA Tampa – New York Yankees) 22 years old

RHP Casey Meisner (HiA Palm Beach – St Louis) 22 years old
6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 4.00 ERA
  • Meisner is with his 3rd different team since his being drafted from high school back in 2013. The Mets took the lanky 6’7″ 190 lb right-hander in the 3rd round and traded him a year later to the Oakland Athletics. His command and control abandoned him during the two season in Oakland. He now finds himself in the Cardinals system; a system that could reclaim Meisner back to top prospect status. They have lots on time, as Meisner only turns 23 this month.

5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 5.21 ERA
