The Orioles will have 56 players in major league spring training camp, barring any late additions, the club announced Tuesday.

The group includes 41 members of the club's 40-man roster. Suspended first baseman Chris Davis does not count against the 40-man roster limit until he completes his suspension -- one more game -- in the 2015 regular season. He can play in exhibition games.


The Orioles have invited 15 players to camp who are not on the 40-man roster, including top prospects outfielder Dariel Alvarez and right-handed pitcher Hunter Harvey, former Orioles on minor league deals such as pitchers Mark Hendrickson and Steve Johnson and outfielder Nolan Reimold, and former big leaguers signed to minor league contracts this winter, including catcher J.P. Arencibia, infielder-outfielder Chris Parmelee and outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo.

One other side note: According to the list, new outfielder Travis Snider will wear uniform No. 23 -- that was Nelson Cruz's number last year.

Here is the full list of players and instructors for spring training, which begins in earnest Feb. 20 when pitchers and catchers have their first workout in Sarasota, Fla.:
