Tonight is the first 2 rounds of the 2013 MLB Draft. The St Louis Cardinals have 3 draft picks in the first 2 rounds. Here is Arch Authority’s picks for the 2013 MLB Draft.

With the 19th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, the St. Louis Cardinals select: 

Dominic Smith (First Baseman, Serra HS (California))

Is this possibly wishful thinking? Perhaps. However, if he falls to the Cardinals at 19th overall, the Cardinals will take him. Fast, highly skilled hitter who is still raw and can learn to play the Cardinal way. He is all over the place on MLB mock draft boards so they’re is no predicting where he will go. So if Dominic Smith falls, the Cardinals will snatch him up.

Highlight film:

With the 28th overall pick, the St. Louis Cardinals select:

Bobby Wahl (Junior, Ole Miss) 

With local prodigy Devin Williams from Hazelwood West likely being off the board, the Cardinals will need to take a solid arm to add to the pitching arsenal. Bobby Wahl can hit 95 MPH with his fastball. His wind-up is so smooth and he just looks like a confident pitcher. If Devin Williams is there, the Cardinals might take him because hitting 96 MPH as a high school senior is impressive. I just believe that Devin Williams will not be on the board at this pick.


With the 57th overall pick, the St. Louis Cardinals select:

Garrett Williams (Calvary Baptist HS (Louisiana))

Some scouts have had concerns about his health issues but they seem to have been corrected. He is a two way prospect. He can pitch left handed at a top speed of 92 MPH. He also can play first base and in the outfield. His utility in the baseball field will be huge for the Cardinals. I think of him as maybe a young Rick Ankiel. A ballplayer that can play multiple positions. I expect the Cardinals to like his versatility and draft him 57th overall.
