The Cardinals announced this afternoon that they have invited the following non-roster players to Major League Spring Training:

  • PITCHERS: John Gast (LH), Tyler Lyons (LH), Seth Maness (RH), Carlos Martinez (RH), Michael Wacha (RH)
  • CATCHERS: Adam Ehrlich, Rob Johnson, Jesus Montero, Audry Perez, Cody Stanley, J.R. Towles
  • INFIELDERS: Greg Garcia, Starlin Rodriguez, Kolten Wong
  • OUTFIELDERS: Justin Christian, Oscar Taveras

The list is obviously highlighted by Taveras, who was named earlier today as’s top outfield prospect. First-round picks from 2011 (Wong) and 2012 (Wacha) have also earned non-roster invites. Right-handers Maness, who was the organization’s pitcher of the year in 2012, and Martinez are two others to keep a close eye on this spring.
