  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Riding 15-game hit streak

    Gorman currently sports a 15-game hitting streak at Triple-A Memphis, slashing .393/.433/.918 with 10 home runs, a 6.0 BB% and a 29.9 K% in 61 at-bats over that stretch.

    It's tempting to get swept up in his power production, but recent history tells us that any hitter who is striking out 30 percent of the time at Triple-A is going to struggle mightily to hit for a high average in the majors. Gorman is nonetheless ahead of schedule, as he doesn't turn 22 until early May and has been arguably the most productive hitter in all the minors.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Leading minors in homers

    Gorman has slugged six home runs in 10 games to open the minor-league campaign with Triple-A Memphis, putting up a .351/.415/.838 line in the process.

    That's the good news. The less-good news: Somehow, all six homers have come with nobody on base, and he's also managed to strike out 15 times in 41 plate appearances -- a 36.6 percent clip. Still just 21 years old, Gorman has time to develop, but he's increasingly looking like a one-dimensional hitter who sells out to hit the ball over the fence. That said, 30-homer power at second base (where Gorman has been moved in light of Nolan Arenado's presence above him and Jordan Walker's below him in the organization) certainly has fantasy value. Of course, Gorman's move to the right side of the infield hasn't gone all that smoothly, as he's made six errors in 23 games at second base dating back to last season.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Assigned to minor camp

    Gorman was assigned to minor league camp Wednesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The highly-ranked prospect will begin the season with Triple-A Memphis before likely being called-up at some point during the 2022 campaign. Between Double-A Springfield and Triple-A Memphis in 2021, Gorman excelled and produced a .279 average with 25 homers and 20 doubles. With the Cardinals bringing in Nolan Arenado last offseason, Gorman was transitioned to second base and will likely focus on improving his work at the keystone early this year.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Available to play Monday

    Gorman (back) is listed among the Cardinals' available reserves for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Gorman was scratched ahead of Sunday's game against the Mets due to lower-back tightness, but he looks as though he'll have the chance to see some game action a day later. The 21-year-old has gone 2-for-16 at the dish during spring training and is likely to open the season at Triple-A Memphis, where he'll likely continue to make starts at both second base and third base to give him multiple avenues to playing time at the big-league level.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Scratched with back tightness

    Gorman was scratched from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets due to lower back tightness, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Gorman was originally in the lineup at second base and batting seventh. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this point, or whether it will affect the team's plans for him to begin the campaign.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Healthy for spring training

    Gorman (hamstring) has been a full participant during the Cardinals' minor-league camp and is expected to open the season at Triple-A Memphis, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Gorman missed time during the Arizona Fall League on account of a hamstring injury, denying him an opportunity to build on a promising 2021 campaign split included stops at both Double-A Springfield and Memphis. Between the two affiliates, Gorman hit .279 while demonstrating solid power (25 home runs, 20 doubles), but how soon he arrives in the majors may hinge on him developing into a passable option in the field. A natural third baseman, Gorman transitioned primarily to second base in 2021 as a consequence of the Cardinals signing Nolan Arenado last winter. The keystone remains Gorman's most viable path to a spot on the big-league roster, even though he projects as nothing more than an average defender at the position.
