Cardinals cut roster down to 25 players with series of moves
ST. LOUIS — The Cardinals‘ major league roster already seemed to be in place, more or less, heading into Monday night’s exhibition with the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds. After the game, the team made things official.
The Cardinals announced Monday night that they have optioned left-handed pitcher Tyler Webb to Memphis and reassigned the following seven players to the minor leagues: RHP Chris Beck, LHP Tommy Layne, catchers Andrew Knizner and Francisco Peña, infielders Tommy Edman and Rangel Ravelo and outfielder Dylan Carlson.
These moves leave the Cardinals with the 25-man group they’ll take to Milwaukee for Thursday’s regular season opener:
Catchers (2): Yadier Molina, Matt Wieters
