4 predictions for St. Louis Cardinals in 2022 MLB Draft
Daniel Susac, Catcher, Arizona
Predicted by Joe Doyle (ProspectsLive)
Remember when I mentioned about how the Cardinals love to draft talent falling in the draft?
Staying in the Pac-12 here, Doyle has Arizona’s Daniel Susac falling to the St. Louis Cardinals at 22. I say falling here because MLB.com lists Susac at #12 of the 2022 Prospect Rankings.
Susac followed up a Freshman All-American season in 2021 with another stellar season with the Arizona Wildcats. With 12 homers, 61 RBIs, and 50 runs, Susac finished 2022 with an OPS of 1.012. Given these two seasons, it’s understandable why Susac is considered one of the best to play for the Arizona Wildcats.
Not only does Susac do well in the batter’s box, but he has a 60 Arm for a catcher. Susac has plus-athleticism and can drive the ball to all fields. If he can improve at receiving the ball, as MLB’s scouting report suggests, this would be a steal for the Cardinals if drafted.
