We are under two weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting, and just 18 days away from the first full-squad workout and the Atlanta Braves blessed us with their non-roster invitee list for Spring Training.

For those unfamiliar, non-roster invitees are individuals who are not necessarily on the 40-man roster and will report to big league camp in the spring to allow front-office brass to take a closer look at what they have to offer.

Last year we saw the likes of Jesse Chavez, Dylan Dodd, Alan Rangel, Jared Shuster, Ehire Adrianza, and Kevin Pillar - all who made contributions to the Major League team during the season, some such as Alan Rangel and Kevin Pillar, who made rather significant contributions to the team.

A quick look shows some obvious candidates - Hurston Waldrep, Drake Baldwin, Chadwick Trump, Tyler Tolve, and Ignacio Alvarez, all top prospects at their positions, or in the case of Chadwick with existing MLB experience. Former Ramblin' Wreck Luke Waddell is an NRI for the second year in a row. Let's take a look at a few of the players who you should keep your eye on this spring.
