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.
- 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.
