Cardinals prospect OF Stephen Piscotty hit his first home run of the season Thursday for Triple-A Memphis.
The 23-year-old is off to a great start this year, batting .327/.377/.449 with four extra-base hits and nine RBI through his first 13 games for Memphis. Piscotty opened eyes during spring training and made a strong impression on the Cardinals' coaching staff. He's still behind Oscar Taveras on the team's outfield depth chart, but Piscotty's overall consistency and knack for hitting left-handed pitching could have him in the majors this season before his highly touted Memphis teammate.

Cardinals prospect OF Stephen Piscotty had another big game on Thursday, going 3-for-5 with a double, walk and three RBI for Triple-A Memphis.

The 23-year-old has now hit safely in all seven games to begin the season, including four multi-hit performances, and has driven in a run in all but one contest. Overall, Piscotty is batting .414 (12-for-29) with three doubles, eight RBI and a 5/3 strikeout-to-walk ratio for Memphis. Though he trails Oscar Taveras on the organizational depth chart, Piscotty could conceivably reach the majors before his highly touted teammate should the Cardinals' big league offense continue to struggle against left-handed pitching.

Cardinals prospect OF Stephen Piscotty is batting .364 (4-for-11) through three games at Triple-A Memphis.

Piscotty, 23, had an impressive showing in spring training and proved he won't be long for the minor leagues this season, even with top prospect Oscar Taveras ahead of him on the organizational depth chart. Keep a close eye on Piscotty as the first half of the season unfolds, especially if the Cardinals' major league offense continues to struggle against left-handed pitching.

Stephen Piscotty will open the 2014 season at Triple-A Memphis.

Piscotty, 23, opened eyes this spring with a .342/.426/.579 batting line and one home run, and showed that he may not be long for the minor leagues this year. In his first full season last year, Piscotty batted .295/.355/.464 with 23 doubles, 15 home runs and a 46-37 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 471 plate appearances between High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield. Top prospect Oscar Taveras is still ahead of him on the long-term depth chart, but there's a growing belief Piscotty will reach the major leagues first this season.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that Cardinals outfield prospect Stephen Piscotty "left such a favorable impression (this spring) that he could be on speed dial."

The 2012 supplemental round pick batted .342/.426/.579 during Grapefruit League play, hitting a homer while walking twice as much as he struck out. Piscotty is certainly less heralded than fellow outfield prospect Oscar Taveras, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he beats him to the majors. If Matt Adams struggles against left-handed pitching, the Cards could move Allen Craig back to first base and stick Piscotty in right field versus southpaws. The 23-year-old will open the year as Triple-A Memphis' right fielder.

Stephen Piscotty tripled, doubled and walked in the Cardinals' 6-4 win over the Mets on Wednesday.

Piscotty, a supplemental first-round pick in 2012, is 7-for-18 with a homer this spring. He's not any sort of threat to make the Cardinals, though. He's a fine prospect, but the Cardinals have way too many outfielders ahead of him for him to have much chance of being anything more than a September callup this year.
Mar 12 - 4:42 PM

Cardinals prospect Stephen Piscotty continued his hot-hitting in the Arizona Fall League on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in a victory over Glendale.

The 22-year-old outfielder is now hitting .333/.386/.444 with 12 runs scored, eight RBI and six stolen bases in 16 games in Arizona. He's fresh off an impressive minor league campaign in which he slashed .295/.355/.464 with 15 homers, 59 RBI and 11 swipes in 112 games between High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield. He'll serve as the DH and hit sixth for the East squad in Saturday's Fall Stars Game.

Cardinals prospect Stephen Piscotty is batting .364/.421/.545 with four extra-base hits and five stolen bases through his first nine games in the Arizona Fall League.

Drafted in the first round (No. 36 overall) of the 2012 draft out of Stanford, there was concern as to whether Piscotty’s bat would translate favorably as a professional. Well, the 22-year-old silenced his doubters by batting .295/.355/.464 with 40 extra-base hits (15 home runs), 11 stolen bases and 46/37 K/BB in 112 games between High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield this past season. In the AFL, Piscotty has continued to swing a hot bat, collecting multiple hits in four of nine games. Over his last six contests, the outfielder is 11-for-22 with three extra-base hits and three stolen bases.

Cardinals prospect Stephen Piscotty batted .295/.355/.464 with 15 home runs, 11 stolen bases and a 46/37 K/BB ratio in 112 games this season between High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield.

It was an impressive first full season in the minors for Piscotty, whom the Cardinals selected with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2012 draft. The 22-year-old was assigned to the pitcher-friendly Florida State League (High-A) to open the season and batted .292/.348/.477 with 25 extra-base hits (nine home runs) in 63 games. Piscotty didn't skip a beat following a promotion to Double-A Springfield in late June, hitting .299/.364/.446 with 15 extra-base hits, seven stolen bases and a 19/19 K/BB ratio in 49 games. Though he’s a mature hitter with a consistent approach and a knack for pounding the gaps, there is some doubt as to whether Piscotty will ever offer enough power to make him a serviceable corner outfielder. While his hit tool and overall consistency will help him get to the major leagues, possibly as early as late 2014, his development of over-the-fence pop will ultimately determine whether he becomes more than bench depth.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have signed No. 36 overall pick 3B Stephen Piscotty.

Piscotty was the Cardinals' compensatory pick for the departure of Albert Pujols and projects as a high-floor, low upside type who provides good defense but not much power at the plate. He'll receive a $1.4 million signing bonus.

Cardinals selected Stanford 3B Stephen Piscotty with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

This is the Cardinals' compensatory pick for Albert Pujols. Piscotty isn't the most patient of hitters, but makes consistent, hard contact, and could be a future .300 hitter. He didn't hit many home runs at Stanford, but actually possesses a decent amount of raw power. A solid defender at third with a good arm and decent speed, Piscotty should be able to reach the big leagues.
