The St. Louis Cardinals selected Colby Rasmus with the 28th overall pick in the 2005 draft. Shortly after, teams started to regret the decision to pass on Rasmus. Rasmus was easy to sign despite having a full-ride offer from Auburn. Rasmus took the $1 million signing bonus and never looked back and three years later is a top ten prospect. Rasmus is a 5-tool prospect with good patience and great power. He hit only .277 in the minor leagues but will probably hit closer to .300 in the major leagues. He is still very young but has already shown the Cardinals that he's ready to handle a starting spot in the lineup.

Rasmus started the season off with the Cardinals, but he'll have to earn a starting spot.
