Cubs Invite 19 to Spring Training
The Cubs are going to have a full house in Mesa this spring, inviting 19 non-roster players to camp. To the list:
LHP: J.R. Mathes, James Russell
RHP: Andrew Cashner, Casey Coleman, Thomas Diamond, Jeff Kennard and Vince Perkins
Catchers: Robinson Chirinos, Steve Clevenger, Blake Lalli and Chris Robinson.
Infielders: Darwin Barney, Matt Camp, Starlin Castro, Bryan LaHair, Bobby Scales and Josh Vitters
Outfielders: Brett Jackson and Brad Snyder
I started to keep track of past non-roster invitees at Wiklifield as well and if anyone can help fill in the gaps, it would be much appreciated, even if it's just a link.
In other news, Ted Lilly has already begun throwing after an offseason shoulder scope and Foxsports says the Cubs have shown interest in Kiko Calero, but are worried about his shoulder.
