With Spring Training just a couple weeks away, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced their list of non-roster invitees.

There will be 22 players invited to big league camp with the reigning NL champions, highlighted by top prospects Yusniel Diaz, Keibert Ruiz and DJ Peters. There are also some players with MLB experience in the mix such as switch-pitcher Pat Venditte and reliever Mark Lowe.

One name to look out for will be Jake Peter, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox in the three-team deal that also brought Scott Alexander from the Kansas City Royals. Peter slashed .292/.351/.506 in 45 games after being promoted to Triple-A last season. He also brings versatility in the field having played every position except catcher and first base. The 24-year-old could fight his way onto the roster with a strong spring.

The Dodgers roster appears to be set but a diamond in the rough could appear and find his way onto the team. Also, the experience for the younger players proves beneficial as they can work out with the big league club.

Here’s the full list:
