For position players, the Rockies are bringing along five infielders, three outfielders and four catchers. One of the backstops, Yorvit Torrealba, is plenty familiar -- he played 312 games for the Rockies from 2006-09.
A pair of Rockies first-rounders have their first career invites this year, too: left-hander Tyler Anderson (2011 Draft) and outfielder Kyle Parker (2010). Eight of the 24 are first-timers in big league camp overall.
Here is the full list of invites (asterisk indicates first time):
Pitchers: Tyler Anderson* (LHP), Miguel Batista, Chad Bettis, Manuel Corpas, Parker Frazier*, Daniel Houston*, Logan Kensing, Jeff Manship, Mike McClendon, Nick Schmidt* (LHP), Erick Threets (LHP), Chris Volstad.
Outfielders: Kent Matthes, Corey Dickerson*, Kyle Parker*.
Infielders: Nolan Arenado, Tommy Manzella, Matt McBride, Ben Paulsen, Henry Wrigley*.
Catchers: Yorvit Torrealba, Gustavo Molina, Lars Davis, Jose Gonzalez*.
The first full-squad workout is scheduled for Feb. 17, a week after the pitchers and catchers deadline.
