St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2021 Regular Season

Another interim adjustment

This newest refresh of the Roster Matrix, covering St. Louis Cardinals and the minor league system, is again different than usual.

The lingering effects of COVID have altered the schedule for most of what remains of minor league baseball for 2021, even while the Major League clubs expect to play a full schedule.

Many of those cut from St. Louis’ spring camp have been assigned to the alternate camp in Sauget, IL. In addition, five of those players will serve as the road trip taxi squad, traveling with St. Louis. Come early May, it is hoped that Triple-A Memphis will begin the regular season with the players from the alternate camp and others.

11 others from St. Louis’ camp this spring have been assigned to minor league camp in Jupiter, Florida. During April, roughly 100 players will prepare for the full-season Double-A, A-Advanced and Class-A seasons. These rosters have not yet been announced.

This level of change is unprecedented in recent times, and as such, the Matrix has been modified to reflect it. The taxi squad, alternate camp and those from big league camp assigned to minors camp are all broken out separately. All other players remain on their 2020 rosters.

For reference, the previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during 2021 spring training.

A refresher

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

As the 2021 big league season opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 263 players under contract from top to bottom, including an almost-full 40-man roster (39).  the 40. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 263 by position at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. Lower level player placements reflect their last actual assignments and will surely change as minors spring training ends. Please remember that the Roster Matrix is not intended to be a projection, but rather a current view.

Another point. Though the State College Spikes and Johnson City Cardinals will no longer operate as Cardinals affiliates in 2021 and beyond, players still reside on those on-paper rosters. Until the organization moves them, they will remain on the corresponding rosters here, as well.

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.)

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2021 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/1/21, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects changes during the 2021 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix during the 2021 regular season, click here.


One-time major change in approach

This newest refresh of the Roster Matrix, covering St. Louis Cardinals and the minor league system, is very different than usual.

The lingering effects of COVID have altered the schedule for most of what remains of minor league baseball dfor 2021, even while the Major League and Triple-A clubs expect to play a full schedule on time.

Spring camps across the game are being staggered to limit the number of players in the facility at once. From the Cardinals’ specific perspective, only St. Louis and Triple-A Memphis will begin the regular season on time, in early April.

Because the Double-A and Class-A players will not report to their spring training until the MLB and Triple-A players vacate, the 67 players currently in big league camp with St. Louis are certain to make up the Opening Day rosters for St. Louis and Memphis.

This level of relative certainty is unprecedented in recent times, and as such, the Matrix reflects it. This is a deviation from the past, when only prior rosters were shown in spring camp versions of the Matrix.

This time around, the 28 players listed below as being with St. Louis reflect those who ended 2020 in the majors. They also make up the default 2021 opening St. Louis team, though there will surely be tweaks as the club slims down to its 26 target for Opening Day.

The 39 other players in camp – whether on the 40-man roster or non-roster invitees (or NRIs) – are listed separately as “Others in camp”. In the near future, the majority of them will make up the initial Memphis roster. The handful of other remaining will join St. Louis’ in-season taxi squad or stay behind in Jupiter for the next camp (Double-A and Class-A) while fighting to fill the next Triple-A roster opening.

All minor league players listed on the Matrix below the current 67 in St. Louis camp remain on the roster at the level at which they finished 2020. They will move once their initial 2021 team assignments are clear.

For reference, the previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during the long and unusual 2020-2021 offseason. It also shows the signing status of Cardinals free agents at both the majors and minors level this winter.

A refresher

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

As the 2021 big league spring camp opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 264 players under contract from top to bottom, including an almost-full 40-man roster (39).  the 40. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 264 by position at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. All players who were assigned to the 2020 alternate camp in Springfield but not invited to 2021 big league camp have been returned to their prior rosters. Many of these team assignments will surely change as spring training ends, but the Roster Matrix is not intended to be a projection; but rather a current view.

Another point. Though it is clear that the State College Spikes and Johnson City Cardinals will no longer operate as Cardinals affiliates in 2021 and beyond, players still reside on those on-paper rosters. So until the organization moves them, they will remain on the corresponding rosters here, as well.

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.

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2020-2021 Offseason

NOTE: As of 2/21/21, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2020-2021 offseason. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix during 2021 spring training, click here.
With the surprising and sobering open to the 2020-2021 free agent season, a refresh of the Roster Matrix is in order.

As you will see below, the initial transactions incorporate the flurry of roster moves both on and off the 40-man roster as the St. Louis Cardinals said goodbye to a number of players as well as brought others off the injured list, as MLB rules require.

The previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during the shortened 2020 regular season of 60 games as well as the team’s brief foray into the playoffs.

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

As the 2020 World Series concluded, the St. Louis Cardinals had 276 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster plus five who were out for the season and temporarily exempted from the 40. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 276 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. All players who were assigned to the alternate camp in Springfield have been returned to their prior rosters. Many of these team assignments will surely change in the spring, but the Roster Matrix is not a projection; it is a current view.

Another point. Though it is clear that the State College Spikes and Johnson City Cardinals will no longer operate as Cardinals affiliates in 2021 and beyond, players still reside on those rosters. So until the organization moves them, they will remain on the corresponding rosters here, as well. But with the next update planned for the opening of 2021 spring training camp, this will likely be the two clubs’ Roster Matrix swan song.

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.)

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2020 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 10/31/20, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the shortened 2020 regular season and playoffs. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix during the 2020-2021 offseason, click here.


Four months late, the St. Louis Cardinals finally opened the 2020 regular season, on July 24. With the announcement of the Opening Day roster of 29 of 30 allowable players, a refresh of the Roster Matrix is in order.

Four other players are out of action, two for the entire season, with 27 others assigned to the club’s alternate camp, informally called Summer Camp South, located in Springfield, MO.

The previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during the Summer Camp, held in St. Louis for three weeks in July.

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

Including all 2020 draft picks and free agents signed, the St. Louis Cardinals have 274 players under contract from top to bottom, including 38 players on 40-man roster, plus two out for the season – Jordan Hicks and John Brebbia. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

With those two excluded, the Cardinals have filled 58 of the 60 spots allowed in their 2020 pool.

The matrix places each of the 274 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. With no minor league season, all players below Summer Camp South are inactive in 2020.

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. Note the addition of the new Summer Camp South to be used in 2020 only. Rosters other than St. Louis and Summer Camp South are essentially inactive this season.

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2020 Summer/Alternate Training Camps

NOTE: As of 7/24/20, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2020 Summer Camp. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix during the 2020 regular season, click here.

As St. Louis Cardinals players are reporting to Busch Stadium following the 2 1/2-month shutdown across Major League Baseball caused by COVID-19, a refresh of the Roster Matrix is in order.

A reset of St. Louis pre-season roster, called Summer Camp roster, was announced on Sunday, June 28, consists of 44 players. By July 14, the Cardinals will complete their 60-man roster of eligible players for the shortened 60-game regular season to begin on July 23-24 and run through September 27.

The 44 are reporting to St. Louis in preparation for the first official workouts of Summer Camp on Friday, July 3. The other 16 players will arrive in Springfield, MO mid-month to begin preparations as the team’s alternate training site squad, called “Summer Camp South”.

As the 44 is whittled down to 30 during July, players will also be reassigned to the Summer Camp South, with all transactions reported here.

In addition, the Cardinals signed 15 new players during June. Seven comprised the club’s 2020 draft class and the other eight were non-drafted free agents. As they are added to minor league rosters, the changes will be reflected here as well as on our individual team rosters.

The previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions from the close of big-league camp on March 12, including the late-May release of 33 minor leaguers.

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

As all draft picks are signed and Summer Camp begins, the St. Louis Cardinals have 275 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on 40-man roster, plus one pitcher just added to the 60-day injured list (John Brebbia, out for the season). The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 275 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. The non-roster invitees remaining in Summer Camp are noted by (NRI). Those already cut have a line through the (NRI) and 40-man players optioned out to the alternate training site are designed by (opt).

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. Note the addition of the new Alternate Training Site, to be used in 2020 only. Rosters other than St. Louis and the Alternate Training Site are essentially inactive this season.

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2020 Shutdown

NOTE: As of 6/28/20, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2020 shutdown between March 12 and the second training camp, opening July 3. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix during Summer Camp, click here.



Even though no St. Louis Cardinals players are active during this caution period caused by COVID-19, a refresh of the Roster Matrix is in order. Because there was no minor league spring training, which would normally set season-opening rosters, this refresh informally reflects a number of roster adjustments that apparently occurred over the prior weeks and months. They are reflected below.

This article and the tables below reflect the status of rosters across the Cardinals system to the best of our knowledge during the current transaction freeze period.

The previous matrix showed transactions from the start of big-league camp in February – however on it, players on the minor league rosters reflected alignment at end of the 2019 season.

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

As spring training was ended early and final pre-shutdown roster moves were completed, the St. Louis Cardinals have 294 players under contract from top to bottom, including 39 players on 40-man roster, plus one player already placed on the 60-day injured list. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 294 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. The 20 non-roster invitees still remaining in MLB camp noted by (NRI). Those already cut have a line through the (NRI) and 40-man players optioned out are designed by (opt).

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.)

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2020 Spring Training 1.0

NOTE: As of 4/26/20, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during 2020 Spring Training 1.0, which was suspended on March 12. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for during baseball’s shutdown, click here.



With the official full opening of St. Louis Cardinals big league spring training camp, it is time for a refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This article and the tables below reflect moves during the spring of 2020. The previous matrix show how the rosters evolved from the end of the 2019 World Series throughout the 2019-2020 off-season.

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

As spring training officially began, the St. Louis Cardinals had 304 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster, plus one player already placed on the 60-day injured list. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 304 at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. Players are shown at the level at which they ended the 2019 season, with 32 non-roster invitees to MLB camp noted by (NRI).

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 a decade of history.

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2019-2020 Off-Season

NOTE: As of 2/18/20, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2019-2020 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2020 spring training, click here.



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

This article and the tables below reflect moves during the 2019-2020 off-season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the 2019 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 officially began, the St. Louis Cardinals had 322 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster, plus four players being brought off the 60-day injured list. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 322 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 a decade of history.

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

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2019 Second Half and Short-Season

NOTE: As of 10/31/19, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2019 regular season through the World Series. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2019-2020 off-season, click here.


With the official opening of two of the three St. Louis Cardinals 2019 US-based short-season minor league clubs, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This article and the tables below reflect moves during the second half of the 2019 season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the first half of the 2019 campaign for the full-season clubs.

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

As the US-based short-season affiliates began play, the St. Louis Cardinals had 313 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster and 31 of the 40 members of this June’s draft class. The 40-man roster members are called out in bold.

The matrix places each of the 313 at his assigned level in the system and 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 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.

For details behind past rosters and transactions, check out the earlier versions (back to 2009) of the Cardinals organization Roster Matrix, via the following link.

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2019 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 6/20/19, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2019 regular season up to the start of short-season player. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2019 short-season, click here.


With the official opening of the St. Louis Cardinals 2019 full-season minor league season, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This article and the tables below reflect moves during the 2019 regular season until short-season play begins in the second half of June. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during spring training 2019.

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

As the four full-season affiliates began play, the St. Louis Cardinals had 290 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 290 at his assigned level in the system and position at the close of minor league spring training camp. 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 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.

St. Louis Cardinals
Memphis Redbirds
Springfield Cardinals
Palm Beach Cardinals
Peoria Chiefs
State College Spikes
Johnson City Cardinals
Gulf Coast League Cardinals
Dominican Summer League Cardinals Blue
Dominican Summer League Cardinals Red

(Note that all new international players signed for 2019 are listed separately below, but on the above rosters, they were temporarily and arbitrarily placed on the DSL Blue roster. This will not be resolved until late May, when 2019 DSL assignments are set.)

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2019 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/4/19, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2019 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2019 regular season, click here.

With the official opening of the St. Louis Cardinals minor league camp for 2019 upon us, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix.

This article and the tables below reflect moves during 2019 spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the off-season of 2018-2019.

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

As all spring camps officially open, the St. Louis Cardinals had 297 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 297 at his assigned level in the system at the close of the 2018 season 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.)

St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2018-2019 Off-Season

NOTE: As of 3/1/19, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2018-2019 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2019 spring training, click here.

 

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

This article and the tables below reflect moves during the 2018-2019 off-season. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the 2018 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 officially began, the St. Louis Cardinals had 305 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 305 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.)

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.

St. Louis Cardinals
Memphis Redbirds
Springfield Cardinals
Palm Beach Cardinals
Peoria Chiefs
State College Spikes
Johnson City Cardinals
Gulf Coast League Cardinals
Dominican Summer League Cardinals Blue
Dominican Summer League Cardinals Red

(Note that all 2019 international players are listed separately below, but on the above rosters, they were temporarily and arbitrarily placed on the DSL Blue roster. This will not be resolved until late May, when 2019 assignments are set.)

For details behind past rosters and transactions, check out the earlier versions (back to 2009) of the Cardinals organization Roster Matrix, via the following link.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2018 Second Half and Short Season

NOTE: As of 11/1/18, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the second half of the 2018 regular season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2018-2019 off-season, click here.

With the official start to the 2018 schedule for Johnson City and the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday, June 19, it is time for a refresh of St. Louis Cardinals minor league rosters – reflected here in a new Roster Matrix.

This version will reflect moves during the second half of the 2018 full season and the short-season schedule – and will remain current until the MLB post-season concludes and the off-season begins. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the first half of 2018 full-season ball.

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

As the short-season schedule opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 298 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 298 at his assigned position as well as level in the system. At the bottom are the members of the 2018 draft class still unsigned. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

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

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

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2018 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 6/19/18, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the first half of the 2018 season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2018 second half and short season, click here.

With the official start to the 2018 minor league regular season on Thursday, April 5, it is time for a refresh of St. Louis Cardinals minor league rosters – reflected here in a new Roster Matrix.

This version will reflect moves during the first half of the 2018 regular season – and will remain current until the second half of June – after the draft and when short-season ball begins. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during 2018 spring training.

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

As the minor league schedule opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 267 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 267 at his assigned position as well as level in the system. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

Note that the full-season rosters – from St. Louis through Peoria – are up to date. From State College on down, the rosters reflect year-ending 2017 assignments.

In between are 14 players with full-season experience who did not have a spot on an opening roster. Likely these players are remaining ready in extended spring training camp for a full-season roster opening to occur. Though broken out separately here, on our team pages, these players are parked on the State College roster.

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

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

Looking ahead and back

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2018 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/6/18, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during 2018 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2018 regular season, click here.

Despite so many unsigned free agents still seeking employment across baseball, it is time for another refresh of the Roster Matrix. After all, a week of major league spring training games are now on the books.

This version reflects moves during 2018 spring training. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved from the end of the 2017 World Series through February 2018.

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

As spring camps opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 293 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 293 at his assigned position as well as level in the system at the conclusion of last season. The matrix is kept updated daily or as transactions occur.

64 players were initially in 2018 major league camp, including 24 non-roster invitees, denoted as (NRI).

Nowhere else will you find this current and comprehensive single-page view of the entire Cardinals organization over 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: 2017-2018 Off-Season

NOTE: As of 3/2/18, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2017-2018 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2018 spring training, click here.

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.

 

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 new rosters and player pages for every level and every player in the Cardinals system.

Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix: 2017 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/6/17, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during 2017 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for the 2017 regular season, click here.

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

matrix-grid-crop-200This reflects moves during spring training 2017 reflected against season-ending 2016 player placement. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during the 2016-2017 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 2017 spring play opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 288 players under contract from top to bottom, including a full 40-man roster. The 40-man members are called out in bold.

68 players were initially in major league camp, including 28 non-roster invitees, denoted as (NRI).

The matrix places each of the 288 at his last official assigned level in the system 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 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

NOTE: As of 03/13/16, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes during the 2015-2016 off-season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2016 spring training, click here.

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.

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 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 Regular Season

NOTE: As of 6/24/15, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects the changes from the start of the 2015 regular season until the opening of the 2015 short season. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the active roster matrix for 2015 short season, click here.

With the April 9 Opening Day for the 2015 minor league season, 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 the 2015 regular season until after the draft and the start of short-season play in late June. The previous matrix reflects the rosters as they evolved during 2015 spring training.

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

As the 2015 season opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 256 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 255 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 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.
