With Spring Training drawing near, three former Cats were invited to MLB Spring Training as non-roster invites. 2015 MiLB Player of the Year A.J Reed (Houston Astros), Corey Littrell (St. Louis Cardinals), and J.T. Riddle (Miami Marlins) will all be in Florida for Spring Training.
All three players will spend time playing with the big league club before most likely being sent down to Triple-A Camp in late March. Riddle has been rated as high #13 in the Marlins’ System and could reach the MLB in the early stages of 2016. Reed will most likely see his first call-up as well. If the Astros clear a spot for him at first or DH, Reed will be up in 2016.
There will be other players come and go through Spring Training as team’s change their roster. Follow @TreyHuntsmanKSR for more updates as baseball rolls around next month.
