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