Cubs Invite 21 Non-Roster Players to Big League Spring Training

It’s almost time for baseball, with spring training just a week away. Cubs camp officially opens when pitchers and catchers report on February 12, with the first full-squad workout taking place five days later. In addition to members of the 40-man roster, the team announced Wednesday that 21 non-roster invitees will be taking part in big league camp.

Per the Cubs’ press release, the list includes right-handed pitchers Jason Adam, Oscar De La Cruz, Dakota Mekkes, Brandon Morrow, Caleb Simpson, Brock Stewart and Ben Taylor. Then they’ll have left-handed pitchers Rex Brothers, Danny Hultzen, Tyler Olson, C.D. Pelham and Wyatt Short.

The four infielders invited to camp are Carlos Asuaje, Trent Giambrone, Corban Joseph and Hernán Pérez.

Only two outfielders, Noel Cuevas and Ian Miller, received an invite, while catchers P.J. Higgins, Jhonny Pereda and Josh Phegley will be in Mesa.
