2016

2015

When Allen Craig was shipped to Boston at the deadline, the Cardinals were left with little depth behind starting first baseman Matt Adams. Scruggs was summoned for his first taste of MLB action in September, logging 15 at-bats at age 27. Scruggs hit .286/.370/.494 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI across 472 at bats for Triple-A Memphis, a performance that will give him a shot to win a bench role this spring. With how well he hits southpaws, Scruggs could earn some NL-only value if he can get regular starts against lefties in 2015, though his chances of doing so took a major hit when the team signed Mark Reynolds in December.
