Heading into to sweltering heat of the summer, former Louisville Cardinals continue to heat it up on the diamond at every level of professional baseball.

Even though they have only just started their journeys up the professional ranks, former Cards outfielder Josh Stowers and Adam Wolf are already making solid first impressions. On just his 3rd at-bat in his major league career, Stowers registered not only his first professional hit but his first professional home run. In his first 8 games of the season, he has already notched 7 RBI and has posted a slash line of .333/.455/.593 with an OPS of 1.047. Wolf has also had a solid first impression, pitching a pair of scoreless starts and accompanying that with a WHIP of 1.35.

While those two are just getting started, a few others could see themselves getting a call up in the near future. In 70 games with the Diamondbacks’ Class A-Advanced affiliate Visalia Rawhide, third baseman Drew Ellis has established himself as a power threat with 9 home runs, 47 RBIs and a .465 slugging percentage. Catcher Will Smith of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Double-A affiliate Tulsa Drillers has also caught fire in 2018, striking 11 home runs with a slugging percentage .515 in only 46 games. After having a bit of a rough start to his professional career, outfielder Corey Ray has had a bounce back 2018, batting .250/.345/.461 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI in 76 games with the Milwaukee Brewers’ Double-A affiliate Biloxi Shuckers.

There has been a lost of movement for former Cards in the last month. Both Devin Hairston and Lincoln Henzman have gotten called up from Class A to Class A-Advanced in their respective organizations. Unfortunately on the opposite side of that, Matt Koch has bounced between MLB and AAA levels over the course of the 2018 season, while Logan Taylor was outright released before he could see any playing time in 2018. Drew Harrington was also released by the Braves, but was picked up just days later by the Chicago White Sox.
