St. Louis Cardinals: Top five standouts so far this season

St. Louis Cardinals’ top five contributors

Despite dropping two-straight games to the Detroit Tigers, Mike Matheny and the St. Louis Cardinals still hold a 24-12 record, the best mark in all of Major League Baseball, and a three-game edge in the National League Central.

After losing staff ace Adam Wainwright for the year to an Achilles injury, a number of arms have stepped up to help carry the load – both in the starting rotation and the bullpen. Offensively, the team has been solid, ranking second in the NL in terms of on-base percentage and sixth in runs.

So with that in mind, let’s take a look at the top five contributors this season for the Redbirds. This list features both old names and new talent, and even some players you’d never believe belong amongst the others.
