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

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.
