The sixth pick overall in the 1989 amateur draft, outfielder Paul Coleman made his professional debut that year with the Johnson City Cardinals, hitting .233/~.298/.349 with 58 strikeouts in 172 AB. Appalachian League managers named him the 9th-best prospect in the league that season. Promoted to the Savannah Cardinals in 1990, Coleman slipped to .209/~.279/.321 and was caught stealing 7 times in 10 tries.
Sent to the Springfield Cardinals in 1991, Paul batted only .185/~.190/.258 and struck out 49 times while drawing only one walk in 45 games. No longer a prospect by any considerations, the 21-year-old remained a part-timer in 1992 with the St. Petersburg Cardinals. Coleman hit .271/~.292/.329 in 21 games. He finished his time in the Cardinals system in 1993 with the Arkansas Travelers, posting a line of .244/~.300/.372 with 97 strikeouts. He only produced 67 runs in 123 games.
