30 FORMER CHIEFS LISTED AS NON-ROSTER INVITEES

Spring Training is just a week away for pitchers & catchers and with the weather outside less than appealing to the baseball fan we thought we would give you an up-date on former Chiefs listed on major league rosters as non-roster invitees.

A non-roster invitee is not listed on the 40 man roster and usually is assigned numbers in the 60’s or 70’s.  He’s usually the first player cut or he is a veteran who waited too long to sign his contract and is desperate for a job.

Anyway, here’s the up-to-the minute list, less of course the parent Washington Nationals:

Boston-Jason Bergmann, Hector Luna
Baltimore-Mark Hendrickson
Detroit-John Bale
Chicago (AL)-Lastings Milledge
Florida-DeWayne Wise
Chicago (NL)-Reed Johnson
Houston-Gustavo Chacin
Los Angeles (AL)-Kevin Melillo
Milwaukee-Zack Segovia
Minnesota-Chase Lambin, Chuck James
Philadelphia-Erik Kratz, Peter Orr
New York (NL)-Mike O’Connor, Russ Adams, Willie Harris
New York (AL)-Gustavo Molina
Tampa Bay-Felipe Lopez, Ray Olmedo
Texas-David Bush, Kevin Cash, Zach Jackson
San Diego-Guillermo Quiroz, Gregg Zaun
Oakland-Vinnie Chulk
Toronto-WilLedezma, Corey Patterson
San Francisco-Brad Eldred

Enjoy Ft. Myers, Florida, Jason Bergmann.
