St. Louis Cardinals fans have been treated to some young talent this year. Luckily there are more names in the minors that we haven’t seen but will soon.

The St. Louis Cardinals have already dealt with a small wave of injuries at the Major League level and we have been treated to the MLB debuts of Ryan Helsley and Lane Thomas.

Both of these players filled in and did a great job even in limited time with the big club. Ryan Helsley showed us some fireballs out of the bullpen even though he was shaky at times and Lane Thomas showed us his great defense and contact ability in his short time up.

While these two will be back up at some point, the AAA Memphis Redbirds and AA Springfield Cardinals have a lot of talent that can and likely will contribute this year. Injuries are a certainty in baseball and sooner or later, a spot will open up and a young rookie will be able to take the place on the Major League squad.
