21 Non Roster Players on Their Way to Mesa

Another sign that spring training is right around the corner, aside from the 50 degree temperatures in Chicago today, is that the Cubs have announced the twenty one non roster players that will be invited to spring training.  Headlining that list is 23 year old outfield prospect Brett Jackson.  While none of these players will necessarily break camp with the Cubs (nine have previous MLB experience) they will all have the same opportunity to do so during spring training.  It will be interesting to see how the Cubs new staff on, and off the field evaluates the organization’s time in Arizona.
