With the 19th pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, the St. Louis Cardinals have selected Nolan Gorman, a third baseman from Sandra Day O’Connor High School in Phoenix, Arizona.
Lifelong friends with Rays first pick Matthew Liberatore, Gorman can straight up hit. A left-handed hitter, Gorman has been projected as one of the best bats in the draft for some time, as his quick hands through the zone haven’t sacrificed his ability to hit for power. Gorman is likely looking at a solid major league career as a hitter, should he falter at defense.

His defense, however, is no joke either. Gorman can play all across the infield, and doesn’t seem to be deficient at any of them. While he is primarily a third baseman, teams won’t hesitate moving him around if they need to.
It’s unclear where Gorman fits in, but I’m guessing he is 4th in the Cardinals’ system, right behind Dakota Hudson. He’d be the second-best bat in the Cardinals’ system.
