Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Submits massive week at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals plan to have 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman was added to the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Receives camp invite
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman will join the Cardinals' big-league camp this spring.

A first-round pick in 2018, Gorman is likely still at least a year away from contending for big-league at-bats. He reached High-A last season, hitting .256/.304/.428 in 58 games for Palm Beach.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Heading to Futures Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman was named to the 2019 All-Star Futures Game on Friday, Shaun O'Neill of reports.

Gorman is one of two members of the Cardinals organization invited to the July 7 game, with fellow top prospect Dylan Carson being the other. Gorman was just promoted to High-A Palm Beach from Low-A Peoria on June 20 after slugging 27 extra-base hits (14 doubles, three triples, 10 home runs) and driving in 41 runs across 67 games for the Chiefs. The 19-year-old third baseman has gotten off to a sluggish start at his new stop, but his power profile is considered elite.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Moves on to Florida State League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals promoted Gorman from Low-A Peoria to High-A Palm Beach on Thursday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The 19-year-old only batted .241 and struck out in 28 percent of his plate appearances in his 67 games with Peoria, but his strong plate discipline (11.7 percent walk rate) and premium pop (27 extra-base hits) were enough to earn him a promotion to the Florida State League. Gorman's contact woes figure to persist as he faces more advanced pitching, but his 70-grade power is a big enough selling point to make him an attractive building block in dynasty formats.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Knocking cover off ball at Peoria
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman has gone 3-for-7 with two home runs, five RBI, a walk and three runs over his last two games with Low-A Peoria. He's now slashing .325/.389/.650 across 90 plate appearances.

Gorman received a somewhat rude introduction to Low-A last season, hitting just .202 and generating an unsightly .280 on-base percentage across 107 plate appearances. However, hints of the pop he carries in his bat were evident in the six home runs he slugged during that sample. The 19-year-old has been much better in his second go-around, with all three components of his slash line showing significant improvement thus far in the current season. Gorman has already matched last season's home-run total as well, and he's laced 13 extra-base hits overall after managing nine in 17 additional plate appearances in 2018.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Off to hot start in Midwest League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI for Low-A Peoria in its 10-6 win over Wisconsin on Monday.

The Cardinals' top prospect struggled in his first exposure to the Midwest League late last season, but he's faced little resistance in his return to Peoria. Through five games, Gorman has recorded 10 hits in 21 at-bats, with six going for extra bases.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Slugs two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman went 2-for-3 with two home runs, a walk and three RBI for Low-A Peoria in its 6-5 loss to Quad Cities on Monday.

The 18-year-old has tallied four home runs through his first 12 games at Peoria, bringing his season total to 15 after he previously raked with rookie-level Johnson City. True to his reputation heading into the 2018 first-year player draft, Gorman has showcased plenty of power in the lower rungs of the minors, but his poor contact rate bears watching. He's already struck out 21 times in 51 plate appearances (41.2 percent) with Peoria.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Moves to Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gorman was promoted to Low-A Peoria on Wednesday.

Gorman did nothing but impress during 37 contests with rookie-level Johnson City after being drafted by the Cardinals in June. During those games, the third baseman hit .345/.440/.662 with 10 doubles, 11 home runs, 28 RBI and one stolen base.
