Non Roster Invites Released

With Spring Training report dates and Cactus League games approaching, the Cubs have released their list of 21 non-roster players that will be in big league camp.

They have announced the signing of Braden Looper and Augie Ojeda to minor league deals that include invites to camp. The pattern of ex-Cubs returning continues as Ojeda joins a group that also includes Johnson, Wood, Montanez and Wellemyer.

Looper did not pitch in 2010, but it was not injury related. He last put on a big league uniform in 2009 with the Brewers. Augie Ojeda is a switching hitting infielder that played for the Cubs from 2000-2003 and most recently with the D'backs from 2007 to 2010.

Here are the other 19 NRIs:
  • Chris Carpenter
  • Angel Guzman
  • Jay Jackson
  • Trey McNutt
  • Todd Wellemyer
  • Scott Rice
  • Steve Clevenger
  • Chris Robinson
  • Matt Camp
  • Brian LaHair
  • Scott Moore
  • Bobby Scales
  • Marquez Smith
  • Jim Aducci
  • Josh Vitters
  • Brett Jackson
  • Reed Johnson
  • Lou Montanez
  • Brad Snyder

17 days until pitchers and catcher report to Mesa, AZ!
