Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 35 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

Edman started for three years at Stanford, even hitting in the middle of the lineup there at times as a junior, before landing with the Cardinals in the sixth round of the 2016 Draft. He played across three levels in his first full year, including Double-A during the regular season, then got moved up to Triple-A and contributed to Memphis' run to the Pacific Coast League title. Opening 2018 back in Double-A, Edman built upon his performance from the previous year by garnering All-Star honors in the Texas League and finishing the season in Triple-A, where he helped lead Memphis to a Pacific Coast League title. He hit .301 with 30 steals between the two levels, then showcased his advanced game on both sides of the ball in the Arizona Fall League.

Edman is the kind of player whose whole is greater than the sum of his parts, one who can do a lot of things fairly well. He has a great contact-first approach at the plate and doesn't strike out a ton. The switch-hitter has the ability to drive the ball to the gaps, but don't look for him to hit many over the fence. While he has solid pitch recognition and knowledge of the strike zone, he's not a big walk guy and is aggressive in hitter's counts. He has outstanding instincts defensively that allow his solid range and average arm to play up, giving him the chance to stay at shortstop long-term.

Edman probably profiles best as a utilityman when all is said and done. Seeing him as a defensive-minded regular isn't out of the question, especially given the Cardinals' ability to find big league talent in college performers taken in the later rounds of the Draft.
