Fernando Vina earned $2,300,000 for the 2000 St. Louis Cardinals
This is a Historical View of Payrolls for the St. Louis Cardinals. Payroll and Salaries data is available since 1985. The payroll data below is for opening day and includes players on the Active 25-man Roster and DL. Players joining the team later in the year via trade are not included since their salaries would be pro-rated and sometimes negotiated into the trade. Call-ups usually make the minimum or close to it and so the opening day payroll is a very good indicator of a team's budget for a selected season.
