Cardinals outright three from roster
In beginning the process of reconstructing their roster for 2014, the Cardinals have outrighted catcher Rob Johnson, outfielder Adron Chambers and outfielder/first baseman Brock Peterson from their 40-man roster. All three players declared for free agency. Johnson was to be arbitration eligible.
Also, in an administrative move, the club reinstated reliever Jason Motte from the 60-day disabled list.
With these moves, as well as the removal of the players who recently declared for free agency (Chris Carpenter, Carlos Beltran, Jake Westbrook, Rafael Furcal and Edward Mujica), the Cardinals currently have 37 players on their roster.
