Cardinals set 44-player roster for summer training camp

The Cardinals announced the roster on Sunday of the 44 players who will report to Busch Stadium this week to begin training for the delayed start of the 2020 season.

All players are expected to report by Wednesday and first will undergo a coronavirus test before they can begin workouts. The first official team workout is scheduled for Friday.

The 60-game season is scheduled to begin on July 24. The schedule is expected to be released in the next few days.

The Cardinals and all teams will carry 30 players for the first two weeks of the season, when the roster will be trimmed to 28. All players dropped from the roster in training camp or once the season begins will join the taxi squad roster training in Springfield.

An additional 16 players will be assigned to the Springfield roster. Those names also had to be submitted to the commissioner’s office on Sunday but were not released by the team. That camp is expected to open on July 14.

Only the 60 players on the major-league or taxi squad roster will be eligible to play for the Cardinals this season with minor-league baseball shut down because of the pandemic.
