Here are the non-roster invitees to camp
Pitchers and catchers are reporting today in Peoria, which basically means players coming in for physicals. Real action won’t start until Wednesday when the team hits the field for the first time, but hey, it means things are getting close.
I’ve had some questions on what non-roster players have been invited to camp this year, so here’s the list at this moment. You can expect pitcher Jon Garland to be added once he passes his physical.
Pitchers: Jonathan Arias, Logan Bawcom, Jeremy Bonderman, Andrew Carraway, Danny Farquhar, D.J. Mitchell, Brian Moran, Jhonny Nunez, James Paxton, Carson Smith, Taijuan Walker.
Catchers: John Hicks, Ronny Paulino, Jesus Sucre, Mike Zunino.
Infielders: Nick Franklin, Mike Jacobs, Brad Miller, Stefen Romero.
Most of those players are from the Mariners Minor League system and are young guys getting a shot at the Major League camp. There’s only a handful of players with MLB experience from outside the organization this year: Bonderman, Nunez, Paulino, Jacobs and eventually Garland.
Those non-roster invites are joined, of course, by everyone on the 40-man roster. You can see that list here.
