Drafted in the 5th round of the 2021 draft out of Villanova, Gordon Graceffo has caught the attention of talent evaluators around the league and could find himself as a key member of the Cardinals rotation in 2023.
Graceffo got off to a dominate start in 2022, sporting a 0.99 ERA in 45.2 innings of work in High-A Peoria, and was quickly promoted to AA Springfield. Graceffo has not been dominate at that level seeing his ERA bump to 4.66, but the club is still equally excited about the projections for the 22 year old right hander.
Graceffo has strikeout stuff and is getting critical reps against more developed hitters at the AA level. As he continues to better his command and feel for the game, his stuff will play, making him a legit option to start for St. Louis next season.
