With less than two weeks remaining until pitchers and catchers report to spring training, some organizations still haven’t announced all of their non-roster invitees. Typically, an assortment of veteran players and top prospects who aren’t on the 40-man roster are extended invitations to big league camp.

Teams deliberately handpick the prospects they invite, focusing on those likely to contribute in the major leagues within a matter of years. The rest—including many of the prospects invited to big league camp—are sent to minor league spring training.

Here’s a look at every team’s best prospect who wasn’t invited to major league spring training.
