Two More Non-Roster Invitees

2011 Multi-Ad Reading Phillies #15 and #22
The Phillies recently invited two more right-handed pitchers to Spring Training, bringing the non-roster tally to 15.  Barring any other additions, the Phils will send 55 players to Clearwater in mid-February in an attempt to whittle down to the best 25.  All that is left to do is to assign the non-roster guys uniform numbers in the 60's and 70's and then load up the equipment truck.

Both Austin Hyatt and B.J. Rosenberg, the 14th and 15th non-roster invitees respectively, spent their 2011 seasons with Double-A Reading.

Player (position) - 2011 Organization - Last Major Cardboard Appearance
14.  Austin Hyatt (rhp) - Phillies - 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects #BCP63 (Phillies)
15.  B.J. Rosenberg (rhp) - Phillies - Only minor league cards so far
