The San Francisco Giants have announced 28 total non-roster invites to their spring training camp in 2017.
With pitchers and catchers reporting in 14 days, the San Francisco Giants have announced their non-roster invites. There are 28 non-roster invites in total, and a variety of names that are familiar within the Giants, MLB, and the die-hard baseball community. We’ll be previewing each position grouping in spring training, once we get closer. So we’ll wait until then to get in depth on some of these guys. But here is the list!
- Carlos Alvarado (RHP)
- Tyler Beede (RHP)
- Sam Coonrod (RHP)
- Jose Dominguez (RHP)
- Roberto Gomez (RHP)
- Bryan Morris (RHP)
- Neil Ramirez (RHP)
- Matt Reynolds (LHP)
- Michael Roth (LHP)
- Kraig Sitton (LHP)
- Andrew Suarez (LHP)
- Christian Arroyo
- Kyle Blanks
- C.J. Hinojosa
- Jae-Gyun Hwang
- Ryder Jones
- Chris Marrero
- Juniel Querecuto
- Jimmy Rollins
The names we’re familiar with are of course top prospects Beede and Arroyo, the return of Morse, and a generational big name, Jimmy Rollins. If you pay closer attention to the Giants farm system, the names of Duggar, Slater, Jones, and Suarez should be pretty exciting. The outfield competition will be interesting as well.

There are exactly four outfielder we know for a fact that will be in the picture, but for a fifth outfielder on the roster, it will likely come down to one of those five, if they feel it’s necessary to have a fifth. It will also be the first time we see guys like Duggar and Suarez integrated into something higher than AA. Suarez has been tagged as a potential fast mover and may just pitch well enough to set him on the path to move even quicker.
The giants’ spring training should be full of good competition for roster spots all over the board. And again, it will be exciting to see some of these prospects up close for the first time. Pitchers and catchers report on February 14th, and position players report on the 17th.
Stay tuned as we build up to spring training! We’ll have full position grouping previews and more!
