Yankees announce non-roster invitees


Via Chad Jennings, the Yankees have finally announced their Spring Training non-roster invitees. Aside from the minor league contract guys (Luis Ayala, Bartolo Colon, Freddy Garcia, Warner Madrigal, Ronnie Belliard, and Eric Chavez), the following prospects will join the big league team in camp: LHP Manny Banuelos, OF Dan Brewer, C Jose Gil, C Kyle Higashioka, OF Austin Krum, RHP D.J. Mitchell, C Jesus Montero, OF Jordan Parraz, RHP David Phelps, C Austin Romine, 3B Bradley Suttle, 1B Jorge Vazquez, RHP Adam Warren, and RHP Eric Wordekemper. Remember, everyone on the 40-man roster goes by default, so Andrew Brackman, Dellin Betances, Melky Mesa, Hector Noesi, Ryan Pope, etc. will be there as well. They’ll have a total of 67 players in camp this year.

So, apparently Jose Gil has been re-signed after becoming a minor league free agent, and Jordan Parraz cleared waivers after being designated for assignment a week or so ago. Don’t know anything about those prospects? Check out the top 30.
