JUN 18, 2013 8:17p ET
Kaminsky, a left-handed pitcher, was drafted 28th overall from St. Joseph’s Regional High School in New Jersey.
"Robert fits everything that we are looking for as a scouting department," said Cardinals Scouting Director Dan Kantrovitz. "He has outstanding stuff. He has plus fastball velocity, excellent command and an out-pitch in his curveball that was one of the best in the country this year. In addition to his stuff, he is a tremendous kid and a tireless worker. Although only 18-years old, we think he is mature enough mentally and advanced enough physically to hit the ground running."
