St. Louis Cardinals Organization Roster Matrix – 2024 Spring Training

NOTE: As of 4/5/24, this version of the roster matrix is no longer current. It reflects changes during 2024 spring training. It should now be considered a historical reference document. For the current roster matrix for the 2024 regular season, click here.



This newest Roster Matrix covers the St. Louis Cardinals and the entire minor league system, including the MLB club and their four full-season affiliates plus two rookie level teams – during 2024 spring training.

As a reminder, the previous matrix outlined all organizational transactions during the 2023-2024 off-season.

A refresher

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

As 2024 spring camp opened, the St. Louis Cardinals had 243 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 243 by position at his assigned level in the system as well as by position. Spring camp non-roster invitees are denoted by (NRI).

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.)
