Profile: Tommy Pham made it one plate appearance into the 2016 season before injuring himself, and thus has been the plight of Tommy Pham. His minor league career has been lengthy due to multiple injuries slowing down his development. One of those physical issues was an eye condition that it made it difficult for him to see, but he had that issue corrected and eventually made the majors with a decent shot at playing time back in 2015. He played fairly well that season, showing some pop and the potential for some steals, but couldn't seem to get everyday time. He was then injured to begin 2016 and his playing time when he returned was not plentiful. He got into nearly half of the games, but many of those were late-game defensive replacements and he got under 200 plate appearances. He showed some power, hitting nine home runs and adding a couple steals, but also struck out nearly 40% of the time, limiting his batting average and offensive capabilities. The Cardinals signed Dexter Fowler to play center, have Stephen Piscotty entrenched in right and appear fully committed to Randal Grichuk in left. Absent an injury, the now 29-year-old Pham, doesn't have a real shot at decent playing time, and even if he does, he has not shown he can stay healthy and effective for any length of time. (Craig Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Tommy Pham is talented with power and speed, but a lack of playing time, an inability to stay healthy, and major concerns with strikeouts will keep him on the bench for most of 2017.
