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 and where they sign, though of course, they are no longer included in the Cardinals 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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2017 Draft and Short Season

NOTE: As of 11/1/17, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the second half of the 2017 regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2017-2018 off-season, click here.

With the official opening of the short-season phase of the minor league schedule, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects moves during the second half of the regular season in 2017. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the end of 2017 spring training until mid-June.

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

As 2017 short-season season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 244 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 244 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2017 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 6/19/17, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the first half of the 2017 regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the time beginning with the 2017 Draft and short season play, click here.

 

With the official opening of the minor league season, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects moves during regular season 2017. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during 2017 spring training.

matrix-grid-crop-200If you are new to the blog and not familiar with the Cardinals organization roster matrix, here is quick summary:

As 2017 regular season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 261 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 261 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. Full-season players are listed on their 2017 teams. Other players are shown on their 2016 season-ending rosters. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2016-2017 Off-Season

NOTE: As of 03/13/17, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2016-2017 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2017 spring training, click here.

With the completion of the 2016 World Series and the opening of the free agent season – it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

matrix-grid-crop-200This version will reflect the changes made from the start of the 2016-2017 off-season until spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2016 short season through the post-season.

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

As the 2016 season ended, the St. Louis Cardinals had 301 players under contract from top to bottom, including 38 players on the 40-man roster and four players on the 60-day disabled list. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places each of them at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Free agents are noted separately and not included in the organization totals until official.

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.)

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2016 Draft and Short Season

NOTE: As of 11/1/16, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of the 2016 short season until the opening of the 2016-2017 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2016-2017 off-season, click here.

With the June 24th Opening Day for the Gulf Coast League – the last St. Louis Cardinals minor league team to take the field in the 2016 season – it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This version incorporates the 2016 Draft and will reflect the changes made from the start of 2016 short season play until after the playoffs at all levels are complete. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2016 regular season to this point.

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

As 2016 short season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 289 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places each of the 289 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

This version of the Matrix also includes the 2016 draft class, including their signing status and roster assignments, if applicable. Rounds taken are listed in parens following the player name, or (FA) for recent free agent signees. Unsigned players are noted but not included in the totals until official.

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.)

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2016 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 6/24/16, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of the 2016 regular season until the opening of the 2016 short season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2016 short season, click here.

With the official opening of the minor league regular season on Thursday evening, April 7, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects moves during the 2016 regular season and will be used until the June draft and the start of short-season ball. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during 2016 spring training.

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

As 2016 full-season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 250 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 250 at his last official assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

For those players who did not make one of the four full-season minor league clubs (Memphis, Springfield, Palm Beach, Peoria) out of spring training, they remain on the rosters at which they finished 2015. The few players listed as “inactive” will be updated once their current status can confirmed. They are either injured or participating in extended spring training camp or both.

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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2016 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 04/8/16, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during 2016 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2016 regular season, click here.

With the official opening of minor league camp last week, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects moves during spring training 2016 reflected against season-ending 2015 player placement. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2015-2016 off-season, including free agency.

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

As 2016 spring play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 261 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

59 players were in major league camp, including 20 non-roster invitees, denoted as NRI. Early minor league invitees to STEP camp are also noted.

The matrix places each of the 261 at his last official assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2015-2016 Off-Season

With the official opening of free agency on November 6, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This reflects new free agents for 2015-2016 and season-ending 2015 rosters. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2015 short season through the playoffs.

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

As the 2015-2016 season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 259 players under contract from top to bottom, including 33 players on the 40-man roster plus one suspended player. The 40-man members are called out in bold. Listed for reference but not included in the totals are both Major League and Minor League free agents.

The matrix places each of the 259 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2015 Draft and Short Season

NOTE: As of 11/9/15, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the opening of the 2015 short season through the conclusion of the playoffs. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2015-2016 off-season, click here.

With the June 23rd Opening Day for Johnson City, the last St. Louis Cardinals minor league team to take the field in the 2015 season, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This version incorporates the 2015 Draft and will reflect the changes made from the start of 2015 short season play until after the playoffs at all levels are complete. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2015 regular season to date.

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

As 2015 short season play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 273 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places each of the 273 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

This version of the Matrix also includes the 2015 draft class, including their signing status and roster assignments, if applicable. Rounds taken are listed in parens following the player name, or (FA) for recent free agent signees. Unsigned and tentatively signed players are noted but not included in the totals until official.

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.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2015 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/10/15, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of 2015 spring training until the opening of the 2015 regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2015 regular season, click here.

With minor leaguers reporting to Jupiter, Florida for their spring training camp, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the start of 2015 spring training until the opening of the regular season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the conclusion of the 2014 season through the entire 2014-2015 off-season.

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

As 2015 spring training opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 269 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places all 269 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team and position. It has no relative significance.

Note that the 25-man roster for St. Louis and any other club is not in place during the off-season. Players generally remain on the rosters at which they finished 2014. Pay more attention to which camps players are assigned.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2014-2015 off-season

NOTE: As of 3/9/15, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the end of the 2014 regular season until the start of 2015 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2015 spring training, click here.

With the 2014 World Series complete and players considering free agency, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the conclusion of the 2014 post-season until the start of spring training 2015. The previous matrix reflects the rosters from the start of short-season ball in mid-June through the 2014 post-season.

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

As free agency began, the St. Louis Cardinals had 281 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places all of them at their assigned level in the system as well as by position and is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Both major league and minor league free agents will be included with their new destinations tracked and reported. Neither group is included in the Cardinals organization totals.

Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization, including all transactions.

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It has no relative significance.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2014 draft and short season

NOTE: As of 11/4/14, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of the 2014 short-season ball until the start of the 2014-2015 off-season. This should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix covering the 2014-2015 off-season, click here.

With the draft complete and players signing each day while minor leaguers are reporting to their short-season clubs, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the opening of short-season play until the conclusion of the 2014 season this coming fall. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved the start of the regular season in April through mid-June.

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

Before any of the 2014 draftees signed, the St. Louis Cardinals had 253 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places all 253 at their assigned level in the system as well as by position and is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Summer 2014 signees are included. They are either denoted by the round drafted or FA (for free agent) in parens.

At the end are any currently unassigned players (denoted as “to be assigned”). They will make up the core of the Johnson City and Gulf Coast League clubs when those rosters are announced the week of June 16. All of these players are included in the system total of 253.

However, those designated as “draft tentative” and “draft unsigned” are not yet a part of the signed total. “Draft tentative” players are rumored to be signed, but have not yet been officially announced by the Cardinals. As soon as the organization confirms the signings, these players will be moved to their appropriate rosters.

Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization, including all transactions.

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It has no relative significance.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2014 regular season

NOTE: As of 6/10/14, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of the 2014 minor league season until the short-season clubs got underway. This should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix covering the draft and the 2014 short season, click here.

With minor leaguers opening their regular season, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the opening of the regular season until short-season play begins in mid-June. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during 2014 spring training.

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

As the 2014 minor league season opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 264 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places all 264 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position.

This version includes all four full-season minor league rosters. Players at State College and below remain on their 2013 season-ending clubs. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization, including all transactions.

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It has no relative significance.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2014 spring training

NOTE: As of 4/3/14, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of 2014 spring training until the opening of the minor league season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2014 regular season, click here.

With minor leaguers reporting to Jupiter, Florida for spring training, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the start of 2014 spring training until the opening of the regular season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the conclusion of the 2013 season through the entire 2013-2014 off-season.

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

As 2014 spring training opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 273 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The latter are called out in bold. The matrix places all 273 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It has no relative significance.

Note that the 25-man roster for St. Louis and any other club is not in place during the off-season. Players generally remain on the rosters at which they finished 2013. Pay more attention to which camps players are assigned.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2013-2014 off-season

NOTE: As of 3/4/14, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the end of the 2013 regular season until the start of 2014 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2014 spring training, click here.

With the 2013-2014 off-season now underway, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the end of the 2013 regular season until 2014 spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from short-season ball through the conclusion of the 2013 season.

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

As the 2013 regular season ended, the St. Louis Cardinals had 274 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his end-of-season assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It has no relative significance.

The 25-man roster for St. Louis is not in place during the off-season. Pay more attention to the players on the 40-man roster that are called out in bold.

Also listed are Cardinals organization players who became free agents following the 2013 season. Their numbers are not included in the organizational totals.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2013 short-season

NOTE: As of 11/4/13, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the 2013 changes from the start of short-season ball though the end of the regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix starting with the 2013 off-season, click here.

With short-season action underway for those 2013 clubs, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version reflects the changes made from the start of the 2013 short-season (post draft) through the end of the season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the start of the regular season in April through mid-June.

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

At the time of this posting, the St. Louis Cardinals had 283 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster and four more on the 60-day disabled list. The matrix places each one of the 284 at his assigned level in the system by position and is updated daily or whenever transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are designated in bold.

Summer 2013 signees are included. They are either denoted by the round drafted or FA (for free agent) in parens.

At the end are any currently inactive and unassigned players (denoted as “not on official roster”). They are included in the system total.

However, those designated as “draft tentative” and “draft unsigned” are not a part of the signed total. “Draft tentative” players have been rumored as signed by the media, but have not yet been officially announced by the Cardinals.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2013 full-season

NOTE: As of 6/20/13, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the opening of the regular season until short-season ball began. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the newer roster matrix covering the 2013 short season, click here.

With regular-season action underway for the full-season 2013 clubs, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version reflects the changes made from the conclusion of 2013 spring training through the beginning of the regular season and extended spring training until the draft and the start of short-season action in June. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from when spring training invitations were issued through the end of camp.

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

At the time of this posting, the St. Louis Cardinals had 246 players under contract from top to bottom, including 38 players on the 40-man roster and one more on the 60-day disabled list. The matrix places each one at his assigned level in the system by position and is updated daily or whenever transactions occur.

Extended spring training camp invitees are shown in separate groups by the level at which they completed 2012.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are designated in bold.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2013 spring training

NOTE: As of 4/8/13, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the announcement of spring training invitations until the opening of the regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the newer roster matrix covering the 2013 regular season, click here.

With the 2013 major league spring training camp now open, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the start of 2013 spring training until the start of the regular season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the conclusion of the 2012 season until spring training 2013.

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

As 2013 spring training opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 261 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his end-of-season assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The 25-man roster for St. Louis is not in place until the regular season. Pay more attention to the players on the 40-man roster that are called out in bold as well as those non-roster players invited to big-league camp.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2012-2013 off-season

NOTE: This version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the end of the 2012 regular season to the start of 2013 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix starting with 2013 spring training, click here.

With the 2012-2013 off-season now underway, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the end of the 2012 regular season until 2013 spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from short-season ball through the conclusion of the 2012 season.

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

As the 2012 regular season ended, the St. Louis Cardinals had 294 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his end-of-season assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The 25-man roster for St. Louis is not in place during the off-season. Pay more attention to the players on the 40-man roster that are called out in bold.

At the end are currently inactive and unassigned players.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2012 short season

NOTE: This version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the 2012 changes from the start of short-season ball though the end of the regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix starting with the 2012 off-season, click here.

With the short-season minor league schedule now underway, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the first week of 2012 short-season play. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the end of spring camp until then.

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

In the first week of 2012 short-season play, the St. Louis Cardinals had 291 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his current assigned level in the system as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are called out in bold.

The short-season pitchers are broken out into returnees and summer 2012 signees. The latter group is either denoted by the round drafted or FA (for free agent) in parens.

At the end are any currently inactive and unassigned players. The final group, 2012 unsigned draftees, is not a part of the signed total.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2012 full-season

NOTE: This version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the 2012 changes from the end of spring training until the start of short-season ball. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix starting with 2012 short-season play, click here.

With the full-season 2012 clubs preparing for regular-season action, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version reflects the changes made from the conclusion of 2012 spring training through the beginning of the regular season and extended spring training until the draft and the start of short-season action in June. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from when spring training invitations were issued through the end of camp.

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

At the time of this posting, the St. Louis Cardinals had 253 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his assigned level in the system by position and is updated daily or whenever transactions occur.

There is a group of 16 players listed under Injured/Rehab. They are not active on any of the rosters at this time.

Extended spring training camp invitees are shown in separate groups. The first is those initially invited to major league camp as NRIs and the early minor league camp invitees. The second group is the holdovers from regular minor league spring training while the third group is those who arrived for EST at the start of April.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are designated in bold.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2012 spring training

NOTE: As of 4/2/12, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the announcement of spring training invitations until the opening of the regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the newer roster matrix covering the 2012 regular season, click here.

With the 2012 spring training camp invitations issued, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version reflects the changes made until 2012 spring training concludes and the regular season and extended spring training get underway. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the end of 2011 play until spring training invitations were issued.

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

At the time of this posting, the St. Louis Cardinals had 266 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on the 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his assigned level in the system at the conclusion of 2011 and by position. Spring training camp invitees are shown separately. This matrix is updated daily or whenever transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are called out in bold.

The short-season pitchers are broken out into returnees and summer 2011 signees.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2011-2012 off-season

NOTE: This version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the end of the 2011 World Series until the announcement of spring training invitations. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix covering 2012 spring training, click here.

With the 2011-2012 free agent period underway, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the conclusion of the World Series until 2012 spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the start of short-season ball through the end of 2011 play.

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

After eight major league and seven minor leaguers declared free agency following the season, the St. Louis Cardinals had 278 players under contract from top to bottom, including 33 players on the 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his current assigned level in the system based on his placement at the end of the season as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are called out in bold.

The short-season pitchers are broken out into returnees and summer 2011 signees.

At the end is a group of currently inactive and unassigned players.

Free agents are listed, but are not included in the system-wide totals. As they sign, their organization will be noted.

Cardinals organization roster matrix: 2011 short season

NOTE: This version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the 2011 changes from the start of short-season ball until the end of the 2011 World Series. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix covering the 2011-2012 off-season, click here.

With the short-season minor league schedule now underway, it is time for another refresh of the St. Louis Cardinals system roster matrix. This version will reflect the changes made from the first week of 2011 short-season play. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the end of spring camp until then.

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

In the first week of 2011 short-season play, the St. Louis Cardinals had 288 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The matrix places each one at his current assigned level in the system based on his placement at the end of last season as well as by position. It is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

Don’t be concerned about the order of the players’ names within a team. It doesn’t signify anything.

The players on the 40-man roster are called out in bold.

The short-season pitchers are broken out into returnees and summer 2011 signees. The latter group is either denoted by the round drafted or FA (for free agent).

At the end is a group of currently inactive and unassigned players. The final group, 2011 unsigned draftees, is not a part of the signed total.
