Cardinals top prospect list

The Fangraphs baseball site ranks the top prospects in the Cardinals system. And, while most of the names might be familiar to Redbirds rooters, the order is eye opening. Oscar Taveras ranks first in the system, which is to be expected. But if a fan was given three guesses about number two on the list I'd be shocked if they made the correct choice -- even if they were spotted a clue that the player is a pitcher.
