It was just a few months ago that the Philadelphia Phillies were trying to put the cap on their impressive run to the 2022 World Series. Unfortunately, they ran into a buzzsaw Houston Astros squad, but Philadelphia made even more improvements this offseason with additions like Trea Turner, Taijuan Walker and Gregory Soto.

But, as all Phillies fans know, the stars may be the most important pieces on a roster but don't count out key contributions from lesser-known players. And just over two months away from Opening Day, Philadelphia released its full list of non-roster Spring Training invitees.

The list includes the following players:
- Mick Abel, RHP
- Mark Appel, RHP
- Andrew Baker, RHP
- Jon Duplantier, RHP
- Louis Head, RHP
- Jake Jewell, RHP
- Griff McGarry, RHP
- Francisco Morales, RHP
- McKinley Moore, RHP
- Andrew Painter, RHP
- Billy Sullivan, RHP
- Jeremy Walker, RHP
- Ben Bowden, LHP
- Jim Haley, INF
- Scott Kingery, INF
- Vimael Machin, INF
- Will Troffey, INF
- Weston Wilson, INF
- Vito Friscia, C
- John Hicks, C
- Max McDowell, C

Non-roster invitees are comprised of players looking to land final spots on the Opening Day 40-man roster. Of Philadelphia's list, some notable names that stand out include a trio of top-pitching arms in Andrew Painter, Mick Abel, and Griff McGarry.

The three are listed as No. 1, No. 2, and No. 4, respectively, on the Phillies' top-100 list of prospects and will attempt to earn a spot in Phillies' mix. All three have pitched at least to the Double-A level, though McGarry is the furthest along with Triple-A experience.

With Opening Day on the horizon, the Phillies hold +1400 odds to win the 2023 World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook. Spring Training kicks off when Phillies pitchers and catchers report in mid February.
