On Sunday, the St. Louis Cardinals had another camp day in which their top two and lower two rosters opposed each other while the Marlins and Mets faced off elsewhere.
Sunday’s Player of the Day: Outfielder Rainel Rosario doubled twice and plated three Springfield teammates.
Sunday’s Pitcher of the Day: Pitching for Quad Cities, right-hander Joe Kelly dominated a young Palm Beach squad with four perfect innings.
As he has been doing the last few seasons, Cardinals farm director John Vuch is sharing game stats with this site and several others with interest in Cardinals prospects. As always, the raw numbers are his, but the comments mine.
Don’t read too much into which rosters on which players are appearing as early spring assignments are especially fluid.
On Monday, the Cardinals will walk over to the Marlins’ side of the Roger Dean Stadium complex for five games, including both Quad Cities White and Red squads.
The Cardinals spring record against external minor league competition remains knotted at 4-4-1.
