3B - STL - NRI
Cardinals INF prospect Nolan Gorman will get reps at second base this spring.
Gorman is roughly a top-50 prospect in all of baseball. Typically a third baseman, he's now blocked by Nolan Arenado at the hot corner in St. Louis. The 20-year-old is best described as a "modern power hitter." He strikes out a lot but also punishes pitches when he makes contact. Gorman will get to the big leagues quicker if he can smoothly transition to second base.
3B Nolan Gorman was added to the Cardinals 60-man player pool.
Gorman will report to the alternate site in Springfield. The move allows Gorman to continue his development, but he will most likely make his MLB debut in 2021. Gorman is one of the top prospects in the Cardinals system, slashing .256/.304/.428 across 58 games in High-A.
