This newest Roster Matrix, covering St. Louis Cardinals and the minor league system, is refreshed with the short season team assignments for St. Louis and its four full-season affiliates plus two rookie level teams. The latter two squads, in the Florida Complex League and Dominican Summer League, opened their seasons on Monday, June 6.
For reference, the previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during the 2022 regular season through June 5.
If you are new to The Cardinal Nation and not familiar with the Cardinals organization roster matrix, here is quick summary:
As the 2022 rookie ball season opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 242 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster plus two on the 60-day injured list. The 40-man members are called out in bold.
The matrix places each of the 242 by position at his assigned level in the system as well as by position.
The matrix is updated whenever transactions occur.
Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization plus a decade of history.
(Do not be concerned about the order of the players’ names within position. It has no relative significance.)
Looking ahead and back
Now that you’ve found this page once, remember one of three ways to get back here. Bookmark the page, type “Roster Matrix” in the dark blue search box at the upper right (click on the magnifying glass icon) or use the menu at the left of the page: “ROSTERS/PLAYERS/MOVES” > “TRANSACTIONS/ROSTER MATRIX”.
While you are using that menu, note TCN’s full rosters and player pages for every level and every player in the Cardinals system. These rosters remain in sync with the Roster Matrix and carry biographical information on all players.
For details behind prior years’ rosters and transactions (back to 2009), check out the earlier versions of the Cardinals organization Roster Matrix, via the following link.
