This week's focus is on the Cardinals' top prospect, right-hander Shelby Miller. The 19-year-old discloses what was behind his recent three-week detour from pitching in game action for the Quad Cities River Bandits and what he hopes to see ahead.

Also included in the column are summaries of recent signings from the draft class of 2010, a special preview of the Cardinals three USA-based short-season minor league affiliates as well as reminders of how to access the most current and comprehensive rosters and individual profiles of all 321 players currently under contract to the Cardinals.

Last week's column focused on the importance of local host families in easing the transition of young players into professional baseball.
