Spring Training Non-Roster Invitees

Spring Training is just around the corner, and with it, some new faces.

Jeremy Bleich (LHP, Yankees), Charlie Cutler (C, Cardinals), Ike Davis (1B, Mets), and B.J. Rosenberg (RHP, Phillies) will all make their Spring Training debuts this year. Technically, Davis played in 2009, but he only got 5 ABs. He and Cutler both bat left-handed.

Not everyone is so green. Scott Schoeneweis and Adam Stern were both invited by the Brewers, Jason Hirsh was invited by the Yankees, and Josh Whitesell was invited by the Nationals.

Sam Fuld of the Cubs and Aaron Poreda of the Padres both finished last season on their respective rosters, so they wouldn't be considered non-roster invitees. I would assume they'll each get significant playing time this Spring.

That just leaves one question: who else is pumped about baseball starting again?!
