St. Louis Cardinals: Looking At The Future Of Matt Bowman

Matthew Bowman, who is with the St. Louis Cardinals now, was originally drafted by the New York Mets in round 13 of the Amateur Draft in 2012. He made it to Triple-A with the Mets going 7-16 with a 5.53 in 2015. Despite that down season, the Cardinals selected the then 25-year old in the Rule 5 draft last year. This meant that Bowman was required to be on the Cardinals MLB roster for the whole season.

In the 2016 season, Bowman broke out as a successful bullpen pitcher. He took on a similar role to what Cardinal fans were accustomed to seeing Seth Maness be used for.
