Since nobody else will answer your question, I'll at least say I have no idea for the most part. I do not believe STL has anything besides Shelby Miller who is not close to being ML ready in their farm system. I know the Braves have a guy named Freddie Freeman who is a 1st baseman that was ranked as the 32nd prospect in baseball pre-season, he has hit .308/.369/.510 in AAA this season, with their situation at 1st and 3rd he may get some PT at 1b in hopes they catch a hot bat.
I know our AAA team is much more stacked than any of the other playoff contenders.
