    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Racking up hits in Triple-A

    Nolan Gorman has collected multiple hits nine times in his last 18 games for Triple-A Memphis, a span in which he's batted .358/.427/.612 with four homers, 13 RBI and 15 runs.He's picked up a couple four-hit efforts in that span. Most impressively, though, Gorman has noticeably cut down on the strikeouts this year; after whiffing at a 29.0 percent clip across his minor-league career prior to this season, he's at a trim 19.3 percent this year -- and it hasn't cost him any power production. The 21-year-old's future in St. Louis may be at second base rather than third due to the presence of Nolan Arenado, but this season has erased many of the doubts about Gorman's bat -- and there's untapped upside here yet, as Gorman's game power still hasn't caught up with his raw ability.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Smacks first Triple-A homer

    Nolan Gorman went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in Triple-A Memphis' win over Norfolk on Wednesday.The promising prospect had experienced a rough landing at the Triple-A level since his arrival from Double-A Springfield on June 28, as he'd hit just .103 and struck out at a 31.7 percent clip over his first 10 games with the Redbirds. However, Wednesday's three-hit night snapped that funk in grand fashion and gave Gorman his 12th homer of the minor-league season overall.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Bumped up to Triple-A

    Nolan Gorman was promoted to Triple-A Memphis from Double-A Springfield on Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.The 21-year-old appeared in 43 games for Springfield and earned the promotion by slashing .288/.354/.508 with 11 homers, 27 RBI, four stolen bases and 26 runs. His 26.7 percent strikeout rate at Double-A was his best mark above rookie ball, and if he can maintain a similar contact rate against Triple-A pitching, it's possible we could see him in the majors later this summer.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Submits massive week at Double-A

    Nolan Gorman was named the Double-A Central Player of the Week on Monday after going 9-for-26 with seven home runs, 12 RBI and eight runs over a six-game stretch between June 7 and June 13.Gorman had left the yard only three times through the first month of the Double-A season, but he suddenly finds himself near the top of the minor-league leaderboard in home runs on the heels of a huge week in the power department. He's now holding down a .954 OPS this season at Springfield, a sizable increase from the .765 mark he posted between Low-A Peoria and High-A Palm Beach in 2019. Gorman has seen most of his action at third base this season, but he's also picked up nine starts at second base, the position that likely represents his most realistic path to an everyday role at the big-league level with eight-time Gold Glove winner Nolan Arenado entrenched at the hot corner.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Solid thus far in Springfield

    Nolan Gorman owns a .274/.358/.417 slash line with three doubles, three home runs, 10 RBI, two stolen bases, 11 walks and 14 runs across 95 plate appearances for Double-A Springfield.The promising prospect is more than holding his own in his first exposure to Double-A arms, and his current 26.3 percent strikeout rate, while elevated, is actually better than those he generated at the Low-A and High-A levels during the 2018 and 2019 campaigns. Gorman has also continued to display above-average patience at the dish, as evidenced by an 11.6 percent walk rate that's his highest since his first professional stop in rookie ball back in 2018. If he continues to enjoy similar success with Springfield into the latter portion of the summer, a promotion to Triple-A Memphis at some point before the conclusion of the minor-league season certainly wouldn't be out of the question.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Nolan Gorman was reassigned to the minor-league camp Thursday.Gorman got a lot of run in Grapefruit League action as he expanded his defensive versatility by gaining experience at second base. He didn't hit particularly well in 24 plate appearances, posting a .174/.208/.261 line. However, he'll continue to refine his game in the minors and is likely to begin the season at Double-A Springfield.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Adapting well to second

    Nolan Gorman, a natural third baseman who's acclimating to second base in the wake of the offseason acquisition of Nolan Arenado, played at the keystone for the first time in a simulated game Tuesday and helped turn a double play, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Despite being thought of as the team's third baseman of the near future before Arenado's arrival, Gorman embraced the possibility of carving out another path to the majors after the former Rockie was inked to a contract that could run through 2027. Gorman made defensive strides at the hot corner in the Low-A and High-A levels during 2019, but his focus on second base this spring has been going relatively smoothly, including in Tuesday's sim game. The 20-year-old could open the season at Double-A, but the goal is to have him at Triple-A Memphis by the end of the 2021 minor-league campaign.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Likely to get look at OF, 2B

    The St. Louis Cardinals plan to have Nolan Gorman take reps in the outfield and at second base in addition to third base during spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.Gorman has played exclusively at third base through his first four professional seasons, but he won't have a clear path to that position at the big-league level following the Cardinals' recent acquisition of Nolan Arenado, who would remain under contract through 2027 if he elects not to exercise opt-out clauses following the 2021 or 2022 seasons. As a result, the Cardinals are eager to expose the top prospect to other positions in order to find more playing time for him when he eventually reaches the majors. If Gorman's initial returns at outfield or second base aren't encouraging, he would still have a future with the Cardinals as a designated hitter, given the likelihood that the next collective bargaining agreement will make room for another hitter in National League lineups.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Joins 60-player pool

    Nolan Gorman was added to the St. Louis Cardinals' 60-player roster pool Wednesday and will report to the alternate training site in Springfield, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.The 20-year-old is still unlikely to make his big-league debut in 2020, but the move to the 60-man pool will allow him to continue his developmental work in the absence of a minor-league season. Gorman finished 2019 at High-A Palm Beach and had a .256/.304/.428 slash line in 58 games.

    Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Not expected on expanded roster

    Nolan Gorman is not expected to make his big-league debut during the 2020 season irrespective of projected roster expansion, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.Gorman received a spring training invite from the St. Louis Cardinals and proceeded to impress, hitting .308 (8-for-26) with two doubles, a home run, four RBI, two walks and three runs across 13 Grapefruit League contests before play was paused. Nevertheless, despite how highly regarded he is within the organization, the fact remains Gorman is just 20 years old and has yet to play above the High-A level in his three professional seasons. Naturally, his strong showing against big-league arms generates plenty of reason for optimism in terms of his future prospects, but it seems almost a certainty Gorman's only game action this season occurs in developmental games the Cardinals may be allowed to conduct if the minor-league campaign is canceled.
