  • Remeber this kid as a DFA

    From BA on their top minor league prospects. For the Gulf Coast League

    16. D’Marcus Ingram, of, Cardinals
    B-T: R-R Ht.: 5-9 Wt.: 170 Age: 19 Drafted: Cardinals '06 (25)

    Ingram signed this spring as a draft-and-follow after the Cardinals drafted him in the 25th round in 2006, and he immediately made an impact in pro ball. He hit .325 and and utilizing his plus speed and instincts on the bases, swiping 17 bags in 22 attempts.

    Ingram shows some pop in batting practice, though it isn’t quite game-ready. Right now, he’s a line-drive hitter with gap power and a strong ability to get on base and make things happen. He walked more than he struck out, an encouraging sign for a potential leadoff hitter.

    Small and stocky, he drew several comparisons to a young Kirby Puckett. Ingram has a plus arm in center field, where he covers a lot of ground and has good closing speed on balls hit into the gaps.

    15 Ks in 120 ABs is phenomenal for a young hitter.
