USA TODAY Sports

So many players, so little talent

The Yankees have announced the invitation of 26 Non-Roster Invitees for spring training 2014. They signed nine players to minor league contracts that included an invite and the remaining 7 are made up of internal candidate, from prospects to roster depth.

They will invite the newly signed Bruce Billings (RHP), Russ Canzler (1B/3B/OF), Robert Coello (RHP), Brian Gordon (RHP), Chris Leroux (RHP), Antoan Richardson (OF), Scott Sizemore (2B/3B), Yangervis Solarte (2B/3B) and Zelous Wheeler (3B/SS).

Among their internal options, they have invited Matt Daley (RHP), Corban Joseph (2B), Jim Miller (RHP), David Herndon (RHP), Yoshinori Tateyama (RHP), Francisco Arcia (C), Adonis Garcia (OF), Jose Gil (C), Francisco Rondon (LHP),  Fred Lewis (LHP), and Jose Pirela (2B).

A few prospects were brought in as well, including outfielders Mason Williams and Tyler Austin, catcher Peter O'Brien, and relievers Mark Montgomery, Danny Burawa, and Chase Whitley.

Of notable absence is Ronnier Mustelier, and, of course, Greg Bird.

That's 11 right-handed relievers, two lefties, three catchers, four outfielders, and six infielders. No starting pitchers were brought in from outside the 40, either, so I guess they're set with the options they already have.

In case you were worried, all 40-man roster members will be there as well, so Gary Sanchez, Slade Heathcott, Ramon Flores, Bryan Mitchell, Jose Campos, Shane Greene, Zoilo Almonte, Cesar Cabral, Dellin Betances, Nik Turley, and Dean Anna will all be there alongside the projected regulars.
