Orioles announce 2020 spring training non-roster invitees

The Baltimore Orioles announced their 2020 spring training non-roster invitees today that will partake in action in Sarasota, Florida with the organization.

The invitees are listed below:


RHP Christian Alvarado

LHP Ty Blach

LHP Hunter Cervenka

RHP Marcos Diplán

RHP Tom Eshelman

RHP Eric Hanhold

LHP Zac Lowther

RHP Brady Rogers

RHP Chandler Shepherd

LHP Alex Wells

LHP Rob Zastryzny

LHP Bruce Zimmermann


Martin Cervenka

Taylor Davis

Bryan Holaday

Adley Rutschman


Rylan Bannon

Malquin Canelo

Dilson Herrera

Mason McCoy

José Rondón


Yusniel Diaz

Mason Williams

Among these names, several stand out, such as 2019 No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman. O’s fans will get an early look at the future of Baltimore, as the former Oregon State standout will get a chance to compete with current Orioles players.

Joining Rutschman at the catcher position is newly acquired veteran Bryan Holaday. The 32-year-old most recently played for Miami and could be a solid veteran presence to Rutschman and other young catchers.

Yusniel Diaz is a name that stands out because of his high ceiling and the fact that he was the main return in the Manny Machado trade. The 23-year-old Cuban outfielder has electric power at the plate and could potentially become a regular name for the Orioles. While he is yet to show that potential so far, spring training could be a good place to start for Baltimore’s No. 5 prospect.

Alex Wells will get a chance to shine among pitchers in Sarasota as well. The 22-year-old Australian ranks 20th among Baltimore prospects and had a strong showing in Bowie last season.

Rylan Bannon is an exciting infield prospect that played second base for Bowie and Norfolk last season. He ranks 23rd on the Orioles’ top prospects list.
