Yanks Invite 21 Non-Roster Players to Spring Training
By mvyb, 13.01.2007, 14:59

Philip Hughes is just one of many players to keep an eye on during Spring Training this March. Hughes, the Yankee top prospect, was 10-3 with a crisp 2.25 ERA in 116 innings of work in Double-A Trenton last season. The right-handed starter may see some time in the Bronx rotation during the regular season (especially if Carl Pavano and Kei Igawa fail to throw the ball effectively).
Other pitchers invited to spring training include: Steve Jackson and Ross Ohlendorf  (acquired from the D'Backs), Kevin Whelan (came over in the Sheffield trade), Tyler Clippard, Steven White, and Ben Kozlowski.
And since Cashman decided not to go after a backup catcher, the Yanks will be closely watching the six non-roster catchers who were invited. Raul Chavez, Ben Davis,  Todd Pratt, Francisco Cervelli, P.J. Pilittere and Omir Santos will all be competing for the position that Wil Nieves is assumed to be holding.
Andy Cannizaro, who hit his first major league homer last year against the D'Rays, will be one of five infielders to play to arrive at camp. The others are Angel Chavez, Eric Duncan (not much heard about him lately), Ramiro Pena and Marcos Vechionacci. Only two outfielders were invited: leadoff-hitter Brett Gardner (who stole 58 bases last year) and Jose Tabata (second-best prospect in the Yankee farm system).
