    Nice to see some baseball news again, even if it’s just a little respite. None of those guys were really expected to make the 25 man but maybe will be up if baseball is played this season.

    If they wanted to, could they option out Flaherty until baseball resumes? Obvious service manipulation that would ruffle a lot of feathers..

    From VEB on the roster analysis: he gives a shout out to Brian Walton from right here on The Cardinal Nation who keeps us totally informed by any roster moves.

    In my last transaction article, I noted the confusion behind the number of Cardinal players left in spring camp, thinking that the Cardinals might have made a mistake on Twitter, when they announced that only 57 players were left in camp. As it turned out, the Cardinals had at some prior date assigned catchers Aaron Antonini and Pedro Pages to minor league camp without officially announcing it to anyone. Hat tip to Brian Walton, who uncovered the discrepancy on his Cardinal Nation website in his roster matrix.

    Thanks for the news, Ny. I had not seen that.

    Actually, I pointed the discrepancy out almost two weeks ago in the free article below. The Roster Matrix was also updated shortly after.

    FWIW, the VEB guy has the right total, 57, but has the 40-man and NRI split off by one. (Says the attention to detail guy…)

    (P.S. I wish he had gotten our name right. Has anyone ever gone to cardinalnation.com by mistake? The dude who sells t-shirts there a long, long time ago threatened to sue me over the site name. He should thank me instead for all the erroneous traffic he gets. I do wonder if he sells enough to keep his site going. Apparently so.)

    Pretty set for position players. Still wide open on the pitching whenever the season starts.

    27, service time is during the season, no-one is accumulating service days currently, they’re supposed to be in ST still. Optioning Jack down now doesn’t manipulate his time.

    Not to mention the fact that Jack’s head would probably explode if that happened.

    Sending Dean out signals to me that Ravelo will be on the opening day roster.

    Same here. But I don’t think Dean will spend much time in Memphis before getting called up. The only unanswered question regarding Dean that I can think of is ‘Why did the Marlins let him go?’

    mud asked:

    Why did they let go a 26-year old go who has mostly struggled over his first 300 MLB plate appearances?

    Probably the same reason some folks right here want to give up on O’Neill yesterday.

    Well, that and the fact the Miami farm system is loaded with young OF prospects…
