2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

With Matt Adams injured and ineffective, Piscotty earned 63 games in the Cardinals lineup in the second half and established himself as one of the club’s keys of the future. Piscotty needed just 256 plate appearances to mash 26 extra-base hits, including seven home runs. He finished with a .305/.359/.494 batting line while playing all three outfield positions as well as first base. Piscotty showed similar power in the minors, where he was a doubles machine with a fair share of home runs sprinkled in. At just 25, there’s a chance Piscotty continues to bulk up and turns some of those doubles into home runs. Even if the power stays where it’s at right now, Piscotty’s gap power is enough to keep his batting average high and give him plenty of chances to compile runs and RBI in a deep (as always) Cardinals lineup.

2015

Despite putting up solid numbers at Triple-A Memphis, the 23-year-old Piscotty failed to receive a September callup. It's entirely possible that given the Cardinals' wealth of young outfielders, and Piscotty's fairly large minor league workload (500 AB's in 2014), the Cardinals simply decided to give Piscotty some rest. Piscotty will turn 24 in January as he heads into his fourth year of professional baseball after being drafted out of Stanford University. His numbers don't jump off the page other than being very solid across the stat sheet -- he's hit .292/.359/.435 with 28 home runs and 25 stolen bases while posting a 132 to 95 K:BB ratio in 1,137 minor league at-bats. He's been succesful at every level and has the prototypical build for a corner outfielder or infielder. All that being said, he likely won't find his way into an MLB lineup on a consistent basis in 2015 without some help from injuries or a trade.

2014

Piscotty had an excellent season between High-A and Double-A in his transition from third base to the outfield hitting .295/.355/.464. He kept it going during the Arizona Fall League, where he hit .371/.430/.506 and stole seven bases in nine attempts. Unfortunately for Piscotty, the Cardinals' outfield is very crowded and there likely won't be a spot for him until Matt Holliday retires or finds a new team which could be another few seasons. Piscotty still has some work to do in at the Triple-A level, and it's possible that he'll return to Springfield before a promotion to Memphis given that he only played 49 games at Double-A after his promotion last season.
