Early Cardinals minor league working rosters

How St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers were organized early in 2014 spring training camp.

After the full complement of St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers reported to spring training camp two week ago, they joined the two dozen STEP Camp players already on site. Players were organized into working groups represented by the names "Memphis, Springfield, Palm Beach and Peoria 1 and 2" for external games.

However, these are working rosters constantly in flux and are shared for your interest only. Not only are there chain reactions of movement when players are sent down from major league camp, but players are readily shifted across rosters as daily needs occur.

In fact, since these rosters were prepared, three players were reassigned to minor league camp late Monday – pitchers Lee Stoppelman and Tim Cooney and catcher Travis Tartamella. They are not reflected below, but have been added to the Memphis working roster.

The entire purpose of spring training is to enable the competition for full-season roster spots. Anything between now and opening day has to be considered written in pencil.

There are also others currently working on rehabbing in Jupiter or elsewhere. In other articles, I have provided the injury status of several to date and hope to share more on many of the others soon.
