JUPITER, Fla. — The Cardinals announced a tentative group of 21 players who will participate at their alternate camp in Sauget for the month of April before minor-league seasons begin in May.
Among the notables on the list are pitchers Johan Oviedo, Matthew Liberatore and Zack Thompson. Most of the players will comprise the bulk of the Class AAA Memphis club.
Infielder Nolan Gorman is not on the list. He will remain back at the Cardinals’ complex here, likely headed to Class AA Springfield where he will play second base and his natural third-base position. Also, prized catcher Ivan Herrera will stay in Jupiter.
