Cardinals Minor League Training Camp Rosters

163 players and counting are currently toiling in St. Louis Cardinals minor league spring training camp. We have all their names!

61 St. Louis Cardinals minor league position players reported to spring training camp in Jupiter, Florida on Wednesday, March 5 with their first workout held yesterday, Thursday, March 6. Six more players were sent down from the big league camp Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Not to be outdone, 78 Cardinals minor league pitchers along with 18 catchers had arrived first, on Monday, March 3. Their first workout was held on Tuesday, March 4.

With 100 roster spots coming open on the Cardinals four full-season clubs in Memphis (Triple-A), Springfield (Double-A), Palm Beach (A-Advanced) and Quad Cities (A), well over a third of these players will eventually be put on the disabled list, released or re-assigned to Extended Spring Training (EST) by the end of March.

EST begins in April when the full-season clubs move out and will help to supply players for several of the short-season teams' rosters, augmented by newcomers yet to be selected in this coming June's draft, which amazingly is just 90 days away.

In reality, while the current count of 163 also includes the ten cut from the major league camp on Monday, March 3 and the six mentioned above, they are not yet the full complement of players who will eventually report to minor league headquarters.

There are 13 non-roster players still remaining in major league camp along with up to another dozen healthy players on the 40-man roster for which there will be no space. Together, the pair of sources could add another two dozen or so who will need to be reassigned to the minor leagues over the next three weeks as the big club slims down to the opening day 25-man roster.

As you scan the groups below, remember the Cardinals new plan for roster assignments this spring, hence all players are listed together at this juncture.
