With pitchers and catchers set to report to spring training early next week, every team but the Red Sox has officially announced its list of non-roster invitees to major league camp—usually a mixture of displaced, minor league contract players and highly regarded prospects.
This year’s crop of prospects invited to big league camp is highlighted by many of the top young players in the game, such as Jurickson Profar, Dylan Bundy, Oscar Taveras, Wil Myers and Taijuan Walker. While it’s unlikely that any of the aforementioned prospects make their club’s Opening Day roster, they each have the potential to reach the major leagues next season.
At the same time, there are several top prospects—Addison Russell, Austin Hedges and Kaleb Cowart, to name a few—who have been invited to their first spring training. And with many notable big leaguers participating in the World Baseball Classic in March, the younger players in camp should receive an extended look, especially early in the spring.
Here’s an in-depth look at each team’s top prospect invited to major league spring training.
