But there are also some fresh faces that make St. Louis talk. Willson Contreras takes over behind the plate for Yadier Molina and the former Cub has spoken enthusiastically about his new organization throughout the offseason. Rookie Jordan Walker is on the opening day list, and MLB.com’s #4 ranked prospect is turning heads.
After a productive offseason, the Cardinals are favorites to win the NL Central. You certainly have the list for it. But this season, their goals stretch far beyond the division.
