The Minnesota Twins officially invited 18 players on minor-league contracts to 2021 spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., the team announced Monday.
A pair former first-round picks are included on the list — outfielder Trevor Larnach (selected in 2018) and shortstop Royce Lewis (2017).
Of the 18 players, the Twins invited nine pitchers, three catchers, three infielders and three outfielders. Eleven of the 18 non-roster invitees have previous MLB experience, including outfielder Keon Broxton, infielder Tzu-Wei Lin and catcher Tomas Telis.
In addition, the Twins invited 15 players to participate in camp as minor-league depth players, including 2020 first-round pick Aaron Sabato and right-handed pitcher Matt Canterino, ranked by MLB.com as the organization’s No. 8 and No. 11-ranked prospects.
Minnesota’s first full-squad workout is scheduled for Feb. 23. Pitchers and catchers report to camp Friday.
