The St. Louis Cardinals Organizational Depth Charts – Spring 2014 (Majors and MInors)

For all of those websites that put off writing about the Cardinals after the World Series due to fatigue, it is time to brush up on the best run franchise in the Major Leagues.

The majority of the players in the system and in the Majors were developed by the Cardinals franchise.

Last year, I did a Roster Tree of how all of the players were acquired.  Something like 18 of the 25 players were Drafted by the club.

That is light years ahead of the next team in the race.

When you see that St. Louis has made it to the final four clubs 8 teams in 13 years, and now has made 4 trips to the World Series in a decade, you are leaving another chapter in the legacy of the franchise.

John Mozeliak turned up the noise early on Free Agency signing Jhonny Peralta, Mark Ellis – and pulling off the Peter Bourjos trade.

The Cards have Oscar Taveras, Kolten Wong and a cast of other top prospects waiting in the wings to prove they belong in the 2014 year.

Michael Wacha will be around Busch Stadium for a whole year, and Trevor Rosenthal will look to Close for the entire year.

The Cardinals don’t have many needs, but should some arise from injury, they are deep in the Minors and Majors with tradeable assets.

This team will be feared for the next decade as well for this very fact.

By having so many internal players work out, their payroll has been kept aligned with what they want to pay – and not more.

This club could still orchestrate a blockbuster trade for a top ace pitcher like a David Price, Max Scherzer (should he be made available) or perhaps another young assassin, with the chips they possess.

Here is a look at the 2014 organization thus far.

Jeff Kleiner:  “I have been a sports fan since the first Baseball game I went to at Comisky Park in Chicago in 1959, when baseball for me turned from black and white to color.

I have attended or watched thousands of games, always paying attention to statistics, rosters and salaries of all professional sports.

Luckily I had the advantage of watching WGN TV and seeing hundreds of games in the 60’s. Collecting Baseball Cards and then later dealing them gave me an extra sense of the sport, both good and bad.”

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
