White Sox announce non-roster invites to spring training

New, 34 comments

The White Sox released their list of non-roster invites to their major league camp at spring training. Included are players who signed minor-league contracts: RHP Brian Bruney, LHP Leyson Septimo and Eric Stults, C Damaso Espino and Hector Gimenez, INF Dallas McPherson and Ray Olmedo and OF Delwyn Young.

Receiving invites from within the organization are OF Jared Mitchell, Jordan Danks, Brandon Short and Trayce Thompson, RHP Jacob Petricka and Brian Omogrosso, C Michael Blanke and Josh Phegley and INF/OF Jim Gallagher and Tyler Kuhn.

As it appears that there are bullpen spots open for competition, Bruney in particular has a strong chance of making the opening day roster. The lefties, Septimo and Stults, have an outside chance. The remaining minor league signings are roster filler for Charlotte.

As for those from within the organization, Danks may have the best chance at a roster spot. There is the possibility of an outfielder being needed for a bench role and Danks is arguably the best defensive outfielder in the organization.

As previously discussed, Omogrosso also has the chance to compete for a bullpen spot.

The remaining players are in major league camp to gain experience and provide bodies for spring training games.
