Somewhere 1,100 miles from the St. Louis Cardinals home of Busch Stadium, bats are cracking and baseballs are flying in Jupiter, Fla.
With ice and snow falling across the St. Louis area, it’s the perfect time to take a look at how the Cardinals’ 25-man roster is shaping up for the coming season.
With young players like Oscar Taveras and Stephen Piscotty making pushes for the big leagues, the competition is stiff in St. Louis. The club has impressive depth in the outfield though, which will make their push a tough one at this point.
The following is a list projecting the Cardinals' full 25-man roster for 2014. It was put together assuming the Cardinals carry 12 pitchers and 13 position players.
