Heading into the final month of the 2018 regular season, several former Cards are preparing to put a bowtie on some of their best seasons in the major leagues to date.

After having a rocky start to his major league career, center fielder Corey Ray has been able to overcome injuries to have a spectacular 2018 campaign. In 132 games so far this season, the former 5th overall pick has amassed 27 home runs and 73 RBIs with a slugging percentage of .480. Also having an incredible year at the plate, fellow first round selection catcher Will Smith has driven 19 home runs, 57 RBI with a slugging percentage of .464 in just a tad below 100 games. His performance also warranted a promotion to the AAA level, and he could soon see another promotion to the Show due to current Dodgers’ catcher Yasmani Grandal’s age. Receiving another promotion, pitcher Josh Rogers made his major league debut a little over a month after being traded to Baltimore as a part of the Zach Britton trade. The southpaw earned his first career MLB win after surrendering only 3 runs through 5 solid innings on the mound against the Toronto Blue Jays.

On another positive note, both the Burdi brothers Zack and Nick made their ways back to mound via rehab assignments this past month. Nick found himself all the way up to the AAA level with the Indianapolis Indians, and has had 10 rehab games under his belt so far with an ERA just below 6, while Zack was sent down to the Rookie level and has produced an ERA of 2.84 over 7 rehab games with the AZL White Sox.
