Sorting out Cardinals spring uniform numbers

With the official reporting of St. Louis Cardinals pitchers and catchers to Jupiter, Fla. this weekend, the final questions have been resolved with respect to spring training uniform number assignments for the 60 players invited to major league camp.

The information follows below, presented in four formats. The first breaks out the 40-man roster players and the non-roster invitees by position. The second set is also organized by position, but puts the 40-man and NRI players together. The third major grouping is a simple listing by last name and the final presentation is a straight numeric sort, from Carlos Beltran’s number 3 to Kolten Wong at number 89.

Despite the many retired and unofficial reserved numbers, the club managed to avoid assigning any numbers in the 90s to players this spring – until next month when minor leaguers are brought over for late-game appearances, that is.
