The Future Redbirds had four games against the Marlins minor leaguers in Jupiter yesterday. All of the Cardinals teams played up a level (i.e. the Cards AA team played the Marlins AAA affiliate) because the AAA players have headed north to play the big leaguers in an exhibition in Memphis tonight.
Editors' Note: Players, and especially pitchers, often play for multiple different spring training "farm teams" during these back field contests, depending on throw days, rest, and who management wants to see on a given day. Therefore, just because a player is on the field for Memphis, it doesn't mean he'll start the year there.
