Bats: Left     Throws: Left
Born: August 11, 1986 at Columbus, Georgia
Selected in the first round of the 2005 draft.

Colby Rasmus, the talented lefty that has been ranked as the Cardinals No. 1 Prospect from 2007-09, gets his own bobblehead Monday in the Redbirds Labor Day regular season finale.

It wasn’t until his third full-season of professional baseball that Rasmus made his debut in Memphis. He went 3-for-5 in the season opener against the RedHawks with a run and a double, but he didn’t really get hot until summer. In June, the then-21-year-old hit for .337 (34×101) with 12 extra-base hits and 15 RBI.

In 2009, the four-year pro made his major league debut for the Cards, appearing on their Opening Day Roster. Rasmus has been in St. Louis since April, where he is hitting .257 (101×393) through 123 games.
