            Harrison Bader among Cardinals' players returning to team's spring training facility Saturday

            Toasty Tuesday workout  in Jupiter

            St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Harrison Bader (left) talks with third baseman Matt Carpenter outside the batting cages during St. Louis Cardinals spring training last month in Jupiter, Fla. Bader was back at the training facility Saturday.

            JUPITER, Fla. — As camps closed and players scattered Friday afternoon, a St. Louis Cardinals official cautioned that they had to see, come Saturday, "how the dust settles" before deciding on the team's next steps.

            Players made a few steps Saturday — back onto the facility for workouts.

            A handful of players, including center fielder Harrison Bader, came to the team's Roger Dean Stadium, and at least one player was back in the batting cage going through activities.

            After Friday's announcement that Major League Baseball had shuttered spring training camps, the Cardinals expected between 10 and 15 players to remain, voluntarily, in the Jupiter area. The facility would be open to them for informal workouts.

            That number jumped Saturday as manager Mike Shildt said he and the remaining staff were expecting between 15 and 25 players from major-league camp at the workouts at any one time.

            "We were open for business today," Shildt said.

            The Cardinals are planning weekday workouts at the facility to give some structure and not have "players go back to zero." The workouts will not be open to the public, per MLB mandate.

            Some other tidbits from Saturday:

            • Once an opening date for the regular season is determined in the coming weeks or month, the Cardinals expect a 'condensed' spring training. It could be around 14 days or 17 days, depending on how much notice the teams get, Shildt said.

            • The Cardinals are going to set up a schedule for starting pitchers that keeps them at the 45-pitch target for their workouts. The idea is to have them throw about twice a week, on bullpen session days. That would allow them to accelerate in the short window of "Camp 2," and be ready to throw 80, 100 pitches when the regular season opens.

            • Most of the Cardinals' support staff is in the process of planning their return to St. Louis, or their offseason 大中华彩票代理s.
