The St. Louis Cardinals broke tradition with their 2013 draft taking not one, but two left-handed pitchers in the first round. The Cardinals had not drafted a lefty pitcher in the first round since 1994. With the 19th overall pick in the first round the Cardinals selected LHP Marco Gonzales out of Gonzaga University. They picked again at 28th, which was compensation for Kyle Lohse from the Milwaukee Brewers, selecting high school LHP Rob Kaminsky. Finally, in the second round the Cardinals selected shortstop Oscar Mercado with the 57th overall pick.
