Spring Training will give Cardinals fans the first opportunities to see new acquisitions Jason Heyward, Jordan Walden, Matt Belisle, Dean Anna, Ty Kelly, and Mark Reynolds for the first time in a Cardinals uniform.
Two years ago, Michael Wacha surprised everybody’s expectations and he would go on to make his Cardinals debut by the end of May. Last year, Stephen Piscotty was coming off of a red-hot Arizona Fall League season. Marco Gonzales appeared in one game with a less than stellar outing.
Will Luke Weaver be this spring’s big surprise?
The Hall of Famers are expected to be on hand as they have been in the past. It just wouldn’t be Spring Training without them.
Opening Night will be Sunday, April 5 as the Cardinals take on the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The game has already been selected by ESPN to kick off the 2015 schedule of Sunday Night Baseball.
