This isn’t coming from any of the local guys or the big time national draft gurus, but according to an article in the Philadelphia Daily News the Cardinals worked out New Jersey prep center fielder Mike Trout over the weekend.
Like many teams it sounds like the Cardinals are bringing in a big group of players for individual workouts, so I wouldn’t read a whole lot into what you hear on any one player working out with the team. There is something that stands out to me about this article though.
Here’s the quote I find very interesting
Trout just arrived back home last night from St. Louis, where he visited this weekend to work out for both the Cardinals, who have the 19th pick, and the Oakland Athletics, who pick 13th. They are the teams, according to Trout, that have shown the most interest in him.
Now, I don’t really think he is a realistic option for the A’s as there are some guys that fit their profile a lot better that should be available at that spot. Trout usually has been going in the early to mid twenties in mock drafts, so he should be there when the Cardinals pick.
