Baez Among Six Additions to Cubs Spring Training NRI List

The Cubs announced Friday six players from the organization received non-roster invitations to Spring Training … and among the six was top prospect, Javier Baez.

Javier Baez, Casey Coleman, Barret Loux, Nick Struck, Michael Brenly and Rafael Lopez will join 16 other players in Cubs camp this spring on non-roster invitations.

As the Spring Training roster is currently constructed, the Cubs will have 62 players in camp. Dale Sveum mentioned during the convention that there would be 64 players in camp this spring, so there could be an addition or two made once Scott Hairston is officially added to the 40-man roster.
