Unofficial 2015 Cardinals Spring Training Schedule: 11/10 Update

Note: The full, official spring training schedule has been announced by the Cardinals since this post. Details include ticket ordering information. There will be additional posts here at the blog as spring television plans begin to be disclosed.

As a number of other clubs have divulged their Grapefruit League spring training schedules for 2015, we have been able to piece together almost the entire March docket for the St. Louis Cardinals, as well. The tentative details follow.

With just two games against Miami on the above schedule, my expectation is that four of the open dates on this tentative calendar will be filled with Marlins games. The two clubs, which share the Roger Dean Stadium facility in Jupiter, met six times in spring 2014, with St. Louis going 0-6.

The other two unscheduled March 2015 dates will likely be mandated days off.

As had been previously announced, the Cardinals will close camp in Florida on Thursday, April 2, before they conclude their spring exhibition campaign with a single game at AutoZone Park against the Memphis Redbirds on Friday, April 3. The Cardinals will open the 2015 regular season at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on Monday, April 6.

As more information is known about the Cardinals spring training plans, including when tickets will go on sale, as well as television and radio schedules, you know where to find it.

Of course, everything to date is unofficial and is subject to change.

    Mo likes to add specific players early in the free agent period. He is more aggressive than Walt Jocketty in terms of free agent. Walt liked to wait and pay less.
    One of the features of the hyperexpensive free agent marketplace is having to do longer deals than you would prefer. Because Mo chose to outbid other teams for Ty Wigginton, we were stuck with Wiggy for a two year deal. We pursued Randy Choate and had to give him a three year deal, too long in Mo’s current opinion.
    If Mo tries to sign somebody in December, he may have to agree to a longer deal. January and February is the time for one year deals.

      Bernie was saying Rasmus could be one of the better values in the free agent market. It seems like he reads my stuff here at this blog, then uses it himself. Smart!

      Bernie also says the Cards should consider the Cuban slugger, Torres, also as I have suggested. I doubt this will happen, after the fiasco of the IF Diaz signing. Mo shelled out more than the Cards have ever paid before for any amateur, but Diaz must have successfully hidden a back or shoulder injury, because he missed a lot of 2014. Torres may turn out to be 10 times the price of Diaz, its hard to believe Mo will go that high. If the player works out, he will be worth it. But if he is a flop, it would be unpleasant to waste $80MM.

    MLBtraderumors says Cards signed 27 year old SS-2B Dean Anna to a major league contract and added him to the 40-man roster.He made his MLB debut in 2014 with the NYY.12 games 25 ABs 3 hits.Bats LH.Was a minor league FA.Seems like some roster spots might be changing.

    nice article.Not bad signings.Could be Descalso price makes him expendable along with Shane Robinson.Pham could fill the Robinson role and maybe Dean Anna and Greg Garcia can show enough to get Kozma a trip out of town to a new team.Hatley seems like a big hard thrower and Socolovich RH depth.No earth shakers but not a bad early day for Mo.

      When a driver navigates into a single car fatal crash, its not surprising if his judgment was muddled.
      Oscar was a jolly ebullient chap. He would have benefited from a designated driver, yet sadly for baseball fans such was not to be.

    Just read that.Sad.Damned shame nobody was able to stop him from driving.
