Meet The Non-Roster Invitees

Before we begin, the Phillies made a roster move:

They signed right-handed hitting outfielder and 2012 ALCS MVP Delmon Young to a one-year, $750k deal with incentives that could push the deal to $2MM. He'll play right field and come off the bench. This move gives the Phillies seven outfielders competing for five jobs in Spring Training. The others are CF Ben Revere, Domonic Brown, LF-1B Darin Ruf, OF-1B John Mayberry, OF-1B Laynce Nix, and Rule-5 pick Ender Inciarte (from the D'backs' system). Ruf & Inciarte look to be the odd men out.


Here are the 17 players invited to spring training as non-roster invitees:

  • Kyle Simon
  • Justin Friend
  • Aaron Cook
  • Juan Cruz
  • Rodrigo Lopez
  • Adam Morgan
  • Cesar Jimenez
  • Tommy Joseph
  • Humberto Quintero
  • Steven Lerud
  • Joe Mather
  • Jermaine Mitchell
  • Cody Asche
  • Pete Orr
  • Michael Martinez
  • Andres Blanco
  • Josh Fields
