Day 47: Cardinals @ Mets

Jenifer Langosch/

This. Is. It. After a Spring Training that seemed to last from Feb. 10 to eternity, the Cardinals play their final Grapefruit League game this afternoon. Then it’s onto a charter flight for Phoenix, where the club will open the season on Monday.

You can expect most (and maybe, all) of the starting position players to be pulled mid-game on Friday. Manager Mike Matheny said he’d like to get them some work, but not push his regulars too deep into the game. Several players from Minor League camp — as well as those still in big-league camp who are headed to the Minos after today’s game — will cover the final innings.

  2. Matt Carpenter (3B)
  3. Matt Holliday (LF)
  4. Allen Craig (1B)
  5. Carlos Beltran (RF)
  6. Yadier Molina (C)
  7. Daniel Descalso (2B)
  8. Pete Kozma (SS)
