Ultimately, of course, there will be only one 2010 River Bandits club, with those players not released or placed on the disabled list remaining behind for extended spring training camp, which begins on April 6.
While these rosters have illustrative value, they will change quite dramatically in the upcoming days. Names will shift to the right in a wholesale manner as players are sent down from major league camp and spring performance dictates.
After all, there is almost an entire full team's worth of "extra" players still in big league camp. Of the 48 players there, almost half of them, 23, are not going to make the active major league roster to open the season.
|Group 1 (44)||Group 2 (33)||Group 3 (35)||Group 4 (37)|
|Castillo, R||Carpenter, D||Corrigan||DeJesus, An|
|Dickson||Diapoules||Gonzalez, J||Gonzalez, R|
|Fiske||Martinez, Y||Lavigne||Johnson, C|

For ongoing information on rosters and to view our detailed player information pages, please click on the red bar just below "The Cardinal Nation" logo where it says "Minor League Rosters." Once there, be sure you select the 2010 version and click on a player's name to be taken to his individual page. For example, here is the link to the Memphis page.
Note that selected interim spring training camp movements will be reflected in the Cardinals system Roster Matrix on The Cardinal Nation Blog. All rosters will be updated in early April once the regular season gets underway, but the main site rosters will remain static until then.
Finally, check back here very soon for the details on a group of players missing from the above rosters.
A bonus look into minor league camp
Rather than just list the players' names, in the following, you can see into the details of what they are doing, courtesy of coordinator Mike Shildt's minor league spring training camp plans. The first two pages on the schedule are from Saturday. Note that Albert Pujols spoke to the minor leaguers on Sunday morning.
Next are the batting practice groups – hitters and pitchers.
