St. Louis Cardinals, Patrick Wisdom Agree To Deal

The St. Louis Cardinals and first-round supplemental draft pick Patrick Wisdom have agreed to terms on a deal, Cardinals scouting director Dan Kantrovitz tells Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Wisdom appears to be headed to Batavia (N.Y.) for short-season play.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. The recommended slot for Wisdom, the 52nd overall selection, is $969,700.

The St. Mary's University attendee hit just .262 in college this year along with nine homers. He profiles as a third baseman long-term but has a questionable hit tool, according to ESPN's Jason Churchill. It should be noted that Wisdom was quite bad this past spring as well, and ESPN's Keith Law considered this pick a reach because of that.

This was one of the Cardinals four draft picks in the top 60 selections, several of which were compensation picks because of first baseman Albert Pujols signings elsewhere. You can follow all of the first-round draft pick signings here.
