Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

40-plus Cardinals players, 30-plus articles

Before spring training games had officially begun, there was only so much news to be shared from camp. Typically over the course of the first few weeks, individual player features are prevalent.

Seeing current articles getting down to reserves or perhaps players not likely to make the opening day roster challenged me. I decided to see how many of the 40-man roster players have been featured recently. I also threw in a few of the non-roster invitees (NRI).

Alas, I fell a bit short, though my search may not have been exhaustive enough. Still, if you did not read these articles the first time, they should continue to be topical and interesting today.

Writers and links follow. The writer’s name is the story link while the player’s name link is to his stats page at When there were multiple articles available on a player, I selected only one, looking for diversity of voices.
