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

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.)

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.
