NON-ROSTER INVITEE THREAD

It might be good to have an all-purpose NRI thread. Who has your team brought in? I’ll start with the Phillies who unsurprisingly mostly have prospects, with only Pedro Beato, Pedro Florimon, and Daniel “Pedro” Nava in the “hopeful journeyman” category.

The notable prospects who were invited to camp were SS J.P. Crawford, 1B Rhys Hoskins, OF Andrew Pullin, 2B Scott Kingery, and RHP Victor Arano. It will be Crawford’s second invite to camp, and he is widely expected to take over as the Phillies’ everyday SS at some point in 2017. Pullin, Hoskins, and Kingery all need more time in the minors and are blocked by Major or other minor leaguers at their positions.
...
Triple-A veterans Cam Perkins, Brock Stassi, and Logan Moore also will be in camp. It appears that Stassi will get a shot to be a platoon partner of Tommy Joseph’s, but even if he does not accomplish that goal, he might be the go-to first baseman if Joseph goes down with injury. Perkins is a corner outfielder who can really hit, but has an archetypal center fielder’s power. He is an older version of Tyler Goeddel, essentially. Moore is a good defensive catcher who will be in camp because there are never enough catchers. Joining Moore behind the plate will be Chace Numata, who has grown into a good defender and had a breakout year at the plate in Clearwater.
