The June, First-Year player draft brought five of the seven newest St. Louis Cardinals their first ever Major League Baseball contracts. The other two players were signed as non-drafted free-agents.

Todays signees include pitcher Michael Mayers (3rd round, University of Mississippi), outfielder James Bosco (13th round, Menlo College), pitcher Michael Brookshire (20th  round, Belmont University), catcher Alex DeLeon (23rd  round, University of Kansas) and pitcher Kyle Webb (32nd round, Elon University).

“We are thrilled to get all of these players signed and into a Cardinals uniform,” said Cardinals Scouting Director Dan Kantrovitz.  “Mayers indicated to us that he wanted to get started quickly and was eager to get going.  He will report to the Gulf Coast League where we can monitor his innings and allow our player development staff to begin working with him.  Bosco has a chance to be an electric player and we are excited that he is going to begin his career for the State College Spikes.”
