St. Louis Cardinals: What is going on with Delvin Perez

In the last five years, I don’t think there’s been one player that’s been regarded as more of a steal in the MLB Draft for the St. Louis Cardinals than Delvin Perez. Drafted back in 2016, 10 picks ahead of current #1 prospect, Dylan Carlson, at 23rd overall, everyone was excited that the shortstop fell to the Cardinals.

A consensus top-10 pick before the draft, teams were scared away when a positive PED test came out just before the draft. Where other teams were scared away, the Cardinals jumped on the opportunity to give the then-17-year-old Perez a chance.
