I’m always curious about the non-roster invitees. Sometimes they’re young guys who get the invitation just to have the experience of big league camp (Lindor and Naquin). Other times, they’re guys who are on their way down or are struggling (Downs). We’ll take a closer look at pitchers and position players over the next couple weeks. Pitchers and catchers report to Cleveland Indians training camp on February 18th, with their first workout on February 20. Position players report February 22.
