The 32-man 2009 season-opening roster for the Gulf Coast League Cardinals follows. It includes ten 2009 draftees, led by sixth-rounder Virgil Hill, plus a new signing, pitcher Hector Hernandez, drafted in the tenth round. All 2009 draftees are noted below with round taken in this draft.
Hernandez is the 38th member of the 2009 draft class to be signed. 11 are assigned to Batavia, 16 to Johnson City and one, third-rounder Joe Kelly, is non-rostered at this time.
On Wednesday morning, I will update the Roster Matrix for the entire organization, including Batavia, Johnson City and GCL.
