In the MLB First-Year Player Draft, all that glitters is not gold because not every player will sign on the dotted line for the Cardinals and join the system. After the jump, lets take a look at a few of the diamond in the rough players signed later in the draft who have high upsides. Diamonds and gold! All after the jump!

The Cardinals so far have signed 27 draft picks (per CardsInsider on Twitter – official Cardinals account) which includes Lance Jeffries and Casey Rasmus (36th round).
UPDATE - Ryan Sherriff (28th round) has a picture of himself and another guy in Cardinals gear in a locker room. I’ll assume he is one of the 27.
BJ Rains also has 7th rounder Nick Martino signed as well (4 of 27 found)
I’m working to get the rest of the names. Please drops links in the comments if you find reports of other signage.
STLCardinals.scout.com has the rest of the signees in convienient chart form with assigned team:
As you may know, AZ is in Vegas probably recreating the movie Hangover so that leaves me to mind the store while he’s gone. Consequently, we will not have the scouting reports up for draft picks in the rounds 11-50 until Monday probably. We will have them broken up into 4 posts as follows next week.
Please accept our apologies for the delay.
