I'm not putting Luken Baker in that group just yet.
He's played 10 games at Class AAA.
Yepez has played 100-plus.
Both profile best as designated hitters in the majors, if they stick.
Yepez is closer to getting that shot with the Cardinals than Baker, based on the Cardinals' decision-making with the roster and spring messaging before the Pujols return.
Donovan has so many other ways he can break through and stick. He can play pretty much every single position and is a left-handed bat, making him way more versatile than Baker and Yepez.
I think we will see Donovan this season at some point. He's one injury away at lots of positions.
It's a harder path for Yepez and Baker, and the Cardinals added Corey Dickerson and Albert Pujols in their way.
I think Yepez gets here. Baker could be a trade candidate for a DH-needy team?
