2007 Cards Dominican Summer League Roster

The St. Louis Cardinals 25-man DSL squad for 2007 is presented. League play begins Saturday, June 2.

With the 2007 Dominican Summer League beginning play on Saturday, June 2, the St. Louis Cardinals have selected their initial roster. These are the youngest players in the entire system. The ten pitchers and 15 position players range in age from barely 17 years old to 20, with the average 18.7.

The 25 players on the active roster hail from six different Latin American nations, including Colombia (1), Curacao (2), Panama (4), Brazil (1) and Nicaragua (2). As one would expect, the home country, the Dominican Republic, has the greatest representation with 15 players. Manager Maximo Alvarez is a Colombian, with his entire staff from the Dominican.

The most veteran player on the roster, 20-year-old second baseman Quincy Martina, is back for his second season in the DSL after first playing there in 2005. Martina hit .226 in 47 games for the DSL Cardinals two years ago. Last season, he batted .266 with one home run and 15 RBI in 47 games for the Venezuelan Summer League Cardinals.
