Daily Farm Report: Spring Training Edition, March 15-16

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Reviewing the performances of Cardinals prospects from this weekend's Spring Training games.

Here's the first of what is going to be a regular feature going forward, and has been at Future Redbirds for some time. For the unfamiliar, the Daily Farm Report, or DFR, reviews the stat lines of notable players in the Cardinals minor leagues from the night before. It will always cover the lines of prospects listed on our Top 20s, and will also include other notable players, like rehabbing Cardinals, new draft picks, etc. It may also, occasionally, include some commentary by the Future Redbirds writers.

During Spring Training we're fortunate enough to get some assistance from the organization to provide you with these lines from minor league camp games that we would not otherwise have access to. It should be noted that which level a player is playing for on a given day in Spring Training may or may not reflect where he will play during the season; don't draw any conclusions about where a player will start based on which affiliate he played for over the weekend.

Unfortunately, there are no minor league games to report from St. Patrick's Day, but here are some lines from over the weekend. Without further ado...
