St. Louis Cardinals Prospect Report: Wong Walks Off in Memphis; Dejong Goes Deep

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Kolten Wong dropped a whole bunch of adversity on Colorado Springs and the system as a whole was undefeated. The organization added 4 possible future redbirds last night, if you'd like to keep up with all the draft developments including red baron's assessment of the picks you can find all of the information here. Time constraints will make this a little shorter than usual, so let's get started.

Triple-A: Memphis 8 - Colorado Springs 5

  • Kolten Wong (2B): 3-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 1 BB
  • Charlie Tilson (LF): 1-3, R, BB, CS
  • Tommy Pham (CF): 0-4, 2 K
  • David Washington (1B): 2-3, R, RBI, BB
  • Pat Wisdom (3B): 1-4, R
  • Mike Mayers (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
  • Miguel Socolovich (RP): 1 IP, 1 K
  • Sam Tuivailala (RP): 2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR

Sam Tuivailala came into the game in the eighth to attempt a 2 inning save, the eighth went well enough, but a grand slam in the top of the ninth erased a Memphis 2-1 lead...Kolten Wong got immediately back on track for the Redbirds. He led off the scoring for Memphis with a leadoff solo home run in the first and then decided matters with a walkoff grand slam in the bottom of the ninth.

Double A: Springfield 4 - Arkansas 3

  • Bruce Caldwell (2B): 0-4, 2 K
  • Brayan Pena (C): 1-3
  • Luke Voit (1B): 3-3, R, 2 2B, RBI
  • Mike Ohlman (DH): 1-5, 2 K
  • Paul Dejong (3B): 1-5, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • Andrew Morales (SP): 6 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K

DeJong got in a walkoff of his own in Springfield. His solo shot in the 11th was his 9th of the season...Bruce Caldwell didn't wait for a promotion out of Springfield to come back to earth, he only has 5 hits in June...Louis Linwood Voit has 9 homers and a 144 wRC+ in AA this year.

A Advanced: Palm Beach 7 - Daytona 4

  • Darren Seferina (DH): 2-5, RBI
  • Jose Martinez (SS): 2-5, R, K
  • Jesse Jenner (C) 3-5, R, HR, 3 RBI
  • Ian McKinney (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 0 BB, 7 K, 2 HR

For those trying to keep track at home, the Jose Martinez listed above is the Jose Martinez the Cardinals received from the Royals in exchange for Tony Cruz, and NOT the Jose Martinez they received from the Royals for cash considerations.

Class A: Peoria 6 - Burlington 4

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 2-5
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS): 2-5, R
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 3-5, R, 3B, K, CS
  • Brian O'Keefe (C): 1-3, R, 2B, RBI, BB
  • Derrian Gonzalez (SP): 5.1 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 2 K

Derrian Gonzalez faced 24 batters and 13 of them reached base, that he only allowed 3 runs is impressive...I'm sure the organization wants to see what it has in Darren Seferina in Palm Beach, but right now Eliezer Alvarez is ripping the Midwest League to shreds, I'd love to see him Palm Beach at some point this season.

Domincan Summer League: DSL Cardinals 9 - DSL Angels 4
