Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2017-2018 Off-Season

With the official opening of free agency for another fall, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects moves during the 2017-2018 off-season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the 2017 draft and short-season play through the end of the World Series.

If you are new to The Cardinal Nation and not familiar with the Cardinals organization roster matrix, here is quick summary:

As the off-season began, the St. Louis Cardinals had 288 players under contract from top to bottom, including 42 players on the 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 288 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Also broken out are major league and minor league free agents, though of course, they are no longer included in the organization’s totals.

Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization plus multiple years of history.

Do not be concerned about the order of the players’ names within position. It has no relative significance.
