MLB Draft Results, Day 3: St. Louis Cardinals' Draft Ends With A Whimper

With five picks among the first 60, this is a pretty important draft for the St. Louis Cardinals as they hope to sustain the flow of high-quality talent through their organization. On Wednesday, the draft completed its final 25 rounds, allowing St. Louis to put the final touches on a key draft class.

Overall, the Cardinals made 44 picks this year, although it's worth noting that the team may not be able to sign every single one. St. Louis did make that process a bit easier by using its first four picks on college players, though.
