The St. Louis Cardinals selected high-school third baseman and Vanderbilt commit Bryce Denton with their second round pick at No. 66 overall in the 2015 MLB Draft.

In their mock draft, Minor League Ball predicted that the Cardinals would take Denton with the 66th pick. John Sickels describes Denton as a "toolsy/speed player who will need time to grow." Matt Garrioch assessed Denton thusly in a spring profile:

Bryce Denton has some electricity in his bat. He has some serious bat speed. He's an above average runner, has soft hands and a very strong arm. He isn't as big as some of the other 3B's in the class but in all honesty, I could see him playing SS early in his career. He is committed to Vanderbilt, just as Julian Infante is and if they both go to Vandy, that could happen at some point. His bat will play at a corner though.
