Orioles' list of minor leaguers reporting early to spring training

The Orioles have announced a list of 29 players who will report to Sarasota on Feb. 18 for an early mini-camp before the official start of minor league spring training for pitchers and catchers on March 2. Double-A Bowie manager Gary Kendall will be the camp coordinator.

Here is the roster:

Pitchers:
Tim Berry
Tom Boleska
Parker Bridwell
Zach Davies
Rob Delaney
Jason Gurka
Devin Jones
Branden Kline
Zach Petersime
Chris Petrini
Matt Taylor
Tyler Wilson
Zech Zinicola

Catchers:
Zane Chavez
Caleb Joseph
Michael Ohlman
Steel Russell
Brian Ward

Infielders:
Torsten Boss
Buck Britton
Nick Delmonico
Tyler Kelly
Adrian Marin
Christian Walker
Brandon Waring
Zelous Wheeler

Outfielders:
Glynn Davis
Johnny Ruettiger
Brenden Webb

The staff members who will work with the players include Dave Schmidt, Alan Mills, Wilson Alvarez, Ryan Minor, Matt Merullo, Butch Davis, Milt May, Ramon Sambo and Scott Thomas.

These workouts are scheduled to take place at the club's minor league complex. The bulk of the organization's minor league pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report March 2 with position players reporting March 7 and the first minor league exhibition games set for March 13.

You would think many of the listed players could get into some early Orioles spring training games and the first O's game is set for Feb. 23 versus Minnesota. Orioles pitchers and catchers are due to report to Ed Smith Stadium next Tuesday, with position players reporting next Thursday.
