I would like to call attention to my weekly column at FOXSportsMidwest.com, called “Down on the Farm,” which appears each Thursday. The focus should be clear by the title in that I call attention to noteworthy news and performances across the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system.
This week’s main subject is Springfield outfielder Alex Castellanos (pictured), The Cardinal Nation Player of the Month for April. Also receiving ink are Castellanos’ teammate and the Cardinals organization’s monthly top player, shortstop Ryan Jackson as well as both groups’ selection as the April Pitcher of the Month, Quad Cities’ Jordan Swagerty.
Other players called out for being hot include Memphis pitcher Adam Ottavino, Springfield outfielder Tommy Pham, Palm Beach third baseman/outfielder Alan Ahmady and Quad Cities hurler Anthony Ferrara.
