2012 MLB Mock Draft: 3B Stephen Piscotty Could Be Among Cardinals' Targets

In the latest MLB mock draft from MLB Draft Guide, the St. Louis Cardinals select third baseman Stephen Piscotty with their first pick.

Here's one assessment of Piscotty.

Needs to stay at third base to be a true prospect. Doesn’t have power profile to be more than a fringe big leaguer at first base. At third base, could be a high average, solid on base guy with plenty of doubles and mid-teens in home runs. Defense will never be stellar but could be adequate and allow him to maintain value. Intelligent player with a strong work ethic. Ceiling of a solid regular at third base with peak seasons slightly better than that.

Piscotty is hitting .319/.405/.460 with five HR and 54 RBI for Stanford this season.
