Red Sox invite 19 to camp

And the list is in courtesy of Ian Browne of RedSox.com:

Fans will get their first look at first baseman Lars Anderson, viewed to be the best hitter in the farm system, and flame-throwing reliever Daniel Bard.

However, the non-roster group has 13 players who have Major League experience, including left-hander Billy Traber, infielder Nick Green and outfielder Paul McAnulty.

Also invited to camp are pitchers Fernando Cabrera, Enrique Gonzalez, Kris Johnson, Marcus McBeth, Dustin Richardson, Traber and knuckleballer Charlie Zink. For infielders, Jeff Bailey, Angel Chavez, Green, Ivan Ochoa and Gil Velazquez will be in attendance. For outfielders, Chip Ambres, Zach Daeges, McAnulty, Josh Reddick and newly signed Brad Wilkerson. The only non-roster invitee that is a catcher is Carlos Maldonado.

The group I am curious to watch are the prospects: Anderson, Bard, Johnson, Richardson and Reddick. It'll be interesting to see how Zink pitches as well. Although I don't think we'll see a lot of the prospects (they'll probably be reassigned a few weeks in), spring training will still be a decent test for some of them.
