Craig Edwards discusses first round of MLB Draft, Delvin Perez, PEDs

In a live video, Managing Editor Craig Edwards discusses the Cardinals draft and a few other Cardinals related topics.

The Cardinals made a few surprising selections on the first night of the MLB Draft. I talked about the Cardinals first few selections and answered a few other questions people had on the Cardinals.

Topics Included:

  • Top pick Delvin Perez, his potential as well as the controversy surrounding his positive PED test.
  • Compensation pick Dylan Carlson, a switch hitting high school power hitter.
  • Compensation pick Dakota Hudson, an intriguing right-hander from Mississippi State who seemed to have slipped in the draft.
  • Second round pick Connor Jones, who looked good in 2015, but pitched to contact a lot more in 2016 without missing as many bats.
  • Non-draft questions included overworking Aledmys Diaz and Yadier Molina, the status of Wacha in the rotation, the struggles of Randal Grichuk, and the success of Matt Adams.

Thanks to everyone who participated and provided great questions. You can find out more about future events by following us on Facebook.
