St. Louis Cardinals Other 15

MLB rules create two rosters: the 25-man and the 40-man. The 25-man roster is an organization's major-league roster, the ones who suit up and play in the big leagues day in and day out. To be on the 25-man roster, a player has to be on the 40-man. But a player on the 40-man roster and not on the 25-man can play at any other level in the organization. "The Other 15" is a series of profiles on those players who are on the 40-man roster and unlikely to make the 25-man out of spring training.
