Orioles announce nonroster invitees to spring training

Paul Janish #15 of the Baltimore Orioles tags out Chris Gimenez #38 of the Texas Rangers for the out at secodn base in the bottom of the sixth inning at Globe Life Park in Arlington on August 30, 2015 in Arlington, Texas.

The Orioles announced their list of 17 nonroster players who will receive invitations to major league spring training.

The list includes top prospects such as right-hander Hunter Harvey, first baseman Trey Mancini and catcher Chance Sisco.


Here is a complete list of the Orioles nonroster invitees:

UT Steve Tolleson
Outfielders (3)
OF Xavier Avery
OF L.J. Hoes
OF Alfredo Marte

Hoes, who was recently designated for assignment, cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors, will be a nonroster player in big league camp. But another player recently outrighted, infielder Joey Terdoslavich, was not invited to major league camp.


Left-handed reliever C.J. Riefenhauser was designated for assignment last week when the Orioles acquired right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne in a trade with the San Diego Padres, so he could be invited to big league camp if he clears waivers and is outrighted.

Taking into account players already on the Orioles' 40-man roster, which is full, the spring training roster is currently at 57 players.
