Pitching prospects Justus Sheffield and Chance Adams are among 20 non-roster players the Yankees will invite to spring training.
Sheffield, 21, was ranked the No. 16 overall prospect by ESPN's Keith Law and No. 41 prospect by Baseball America entering the season. Last year, he went 7-6 with a 3.18 ERA in 17 starts with Double-A Trenton.
Adams, whom Baseball America ranked No. 81 in its top 100 list, could compete for a spot in New York's rotation after going 15-5 with a 2.45 ERA across two levels last year. He went 4-0 with a 1.03 ERA in four starts with Trenton before he was promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he went 11-5 with a 2.89 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 115 1/3 innings.
The Yankees also invited LHP Wade LeBlanc and RHPs Cody Carroll, Cale Coshow, Raynel Espinal, J.P. Feyereisen, David Hale, Brady Lail, Dillon Tate and Taylor Widener.
Among the position players the Yankees invited to spring training include catchers Francisco Diaz, Erik Kratz, Chace Numata and Jorge Saez; infielders Danny Espinosa, Kyle Holder and Nick Solak; and outfielders Estevan Florial and Jace Peterson.
