The Pittsburgh Pirates invited 63 players to Major League camp this year. That group includes the entire 40-man roster (who all receive automatic invites), 22 non-roster invites, and then Jarrod Dyson, who signed at the beginning of Spring Training. Here’s the list of players in camp with 19 days before Opening Day. The NRI players are in bold writing. Bookmark this article, which will be updated whenever cuts are made this spring. The players with an asterisk next to their name are out of minor league options.
RIGHT-HANDED PITCHERS (16)
Chris Archer, Nick Burdi, Kyle Crick, Michael Feliz*, Geoff Hartlieb, Keone Kela, Mitch Keller, Chad Kuhl, Joe Musgrove, Dovydas Neverauskas*, Yacksel Rios, Richard Rodriguez, Edgar Santana, Chris Stratton*, Trevor Williams and Hector Noesi

I’ve taken Clay Holmes, Steven Brault, Jameson Taillon and Tom Koehler off of the list, giving you 59 players left in camp fighting for jobs. Holmes and Brault haven’t been cut yet, but they won’t be ready for Opening Day. Taillon is out for the season due to Tommy John surgery and Koehler retired. When other players are cut, I’ll place their names below and add a link to the article.
