Boston Red Sox Invite 17 Non-Roster Players To Major League Spring Training Camp


The Boston Red Sox announced Friday that 17 players will attend the team’s major league spring training camp as non-roster invitees.

These players are not on the Red Sox’s 40-man roster, but they are either veterans signed to minor league contracts or prospects from within the organization.

ESPN’s Keith Law listed two of the invitees, Matt Barnes and Blake Swihart, on his top 100 prospects list. Eight of the 17 players also have major league experience.

Pitchers and catchers report Feb. 15.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
