St. Louis Cardinals Superlatives for the 2022 Season
By Josh Jacobs
Most Exciting Freshman: Nolan Gorman
This was a really tough one to pick. Juan Yepez has been on a tear since being called up, and newcomers Matthew Liberatore and Brendan Donovan have a ton of promise, but no one’s debut was more anticipated than that of Nolan Gorman.
Gorman began the 2022 season in AAA and was the hottest hitter in all of the minor leagues. If Cardinal Nation was persistent in their hatred for DeJong, then their calls for Gorman’s promotion were just as loud on the internet and text chains.
Once Gorman was called up, he proved Cardinal fans right and kept up his hot start to 2022 on the big league level. Saturday, May 28th was Gorman’s coming out party and a power display for the rookie, going 4-4 with 4 RBIs on a double and his first career home run.
Nolan Gorman has been full of excitement in 2022, and expect that to be the norm for years to come.
