Cardinals Minors Early Spring Games Rosters

Four working rosters evolve into five team rosters as St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers begin play.

With the start of official minor league games on the back fields of Jupiter, Florida's Roger Dean Stadium, the St. Louis Cardinals player development staff has evolved from the four working groups in early workouts to the five spring rosters along with a shrinking rehab group. 165 players are listed below with more coming in the next few days from major league camp.


Because of the magnitude of the shifts, I felt it was worthy of a post.


Roster moves since last report


  • Four working groups moved onto five team rosters
  • Starters and relievers split out at each level
  • Seven of ten pitchers off the rehab program and onto teams
  • Catcher Audry Perez moved into rehab group. Update: He suffered an hamate bone fracture in his hand, so will be out some time. Tough luck for Perez.
  • First baseman Andrew Brown moved to Springfield infield. Update: My suspicion was correct as Brown will see time at third base, though at this point, the move is not permanent.
  • Second baseman Alex Castellanos moved to Palm Beach outfield. Update: Same as Brown. Trying out a new position.

The games are as follows:
