Major League Baseball’s amateur draft starts tonight. MLB Network is airing the first two rounds starting at 6pm CT. The Cardinals do not have a draft pick in the first two rounds. Trading of draft picks is, with rare exceptions likely not applicable, disallowed so the Cardinals will not be adding to their system tonight. They have no picks due to the hacking scandal and signing Dexter Fowler in the offseason. So what does that mean for the Cardinals?

Round 3, which is where the Cardinals make their first pick, begins Tuesday at 11 am CT. Those rounds are not televised, but you can find the picks at MLB.com. We will have scouting reports on the players selected by the Cardinals.

The Red Baron, as he always done, has still managed to provide some relevant scouting reports for players the Cardinals might draft. Below, you will find links to those scouting reports in two orders, first chronologically as written and further below alphabetically by player name.
