From the group of 117 players listed below, 98 players will be active for Thursday's openers for Memphis and Springfield (24 players each) as well as Palm Beach and Quad Cities (25 each).
Players have been informed they are on the list likely to travel to these destinations when camp breaks on Monday, but changes could still occur, especially based on any needs in St. Louis. Specifically, the Cardinals will not be making a decision on whether or not to disable Matt Holliday until Monday or Tuesday.
With the 15 spring releases now done, the remainder of the "extra" names listed, 19, will likely be inactive, placed on the disabled list. This may include 13 players previously separated out on the rehab list, denoted below with an (I) after their names. At this time, that is a non-official designation.
Before Opening Day, the players to open the season on the disabled list will be named. Some may travel with their teams while many others will stay in Jupiter to continue their rehab work, joining their clubs when ready later on.
The 43 Extended Spring Training camp players, those also designated to remain behind in Florida, are also called out. They were previously listed as being on the "Quad Cities #2" roster. (42 additional players will join them in EST, which begins on April 6.)
