32 round pick 2014 out of South Alabama by the Tigers

While a starter in his early years as a pro, St. John shifted to relieving in 2017. HIs career has been mixed as he adjusts to each level. When he does, the results are excellent.

In 2021, he had a 2.58 ERA in 36 games at Triple-A Toledo. He got in 7 MLB games last year with a 5.40 ERA for the Tigers has now been assigned to Triple-A Iowa.

Here is what he throws:

BP said the following about his talents and projection:

Uses a deceptive delivery, a below average fastball, a plus changeup, an average slider, average command, and advanced pitchability to currently profile as Triple-A depth or an emergency up/down bullpen player. St. John attacks lefties with a hard to pick up arm slot and working fastball/slider on the outside half that keeps them guessing. He attacks righties with a similar strategy with his fastball/changeup, and can drop in a back foot slider when he needs.
