Who are some of the top prospects invited to Major League camp?
Top prospect Junior Caminero (MLB's No. 4 prospect per MLB Pipeline) is on the 40-man roster after a late-season promotion last year. That’s also the case for infielders Curtis Mead and Shenton, starters Jacob Lopez and Curet, shortstop/outfielder Greg Jones and reliever Colby White.
Shortstop Carson Williams, the Rays’ No. 2 prospect (No. 20 in MLB), will be in his first big league camp as a non-roster invitee. He’ll be joined by catcher Domonic Keegan, lefty Mason Montgomery, infielder Ronny Simon and outfielders Kameron Misner and Tristan Peters, along with former top prospect Brendan McKay.
