Spring Training 2012: Oakland Athletics Pitchers And Catchers Report On Saturday

The Oakland Athletics will have their pitchers and catchers reporting to camp on Saturday as Spring Training officially gets underway. It has been an odd offseason for the A's as they have dealt away several young and talented arms. 2012 Spring Training will be one to keep a close eye on, even a week before newly-acquired Cuban star Yoenis Cespedes reports with the rest of the position players.

Here are the pitchers and catchers scheduled to report on Saturday.

40-Man Roster Pitchers:

Brett Anderson
Grant Balfour
Jerry Blevins
Dallas Braden
Andrew Carignan
Bartolo Colon
Ryan Cook
Fautino De Los Santos
Joey Devine
Sean Doolittle
Pedro Figueroa
Brian Fuentes
Graham Godfrey
Brandon McCarthy
Tom Milone
Jordan Norberto
Jarrod Parker
Brad Peacock
Tyson Ross
Neil Wagner

40-Man Roster Catchers:

Josh Donaldson
Derek Norris
Anthony Recker
Kurt Suzuki

Non-Roster Pitcher Invitees:

Fabio Castro
Edgar Gonzalez
Sonny Gray
Jim Miller
Travis Schlichting
Evan Scribner
Erick Threets
Merkin Valdez

Non-Roster Catcher Invitees:

Ryan Ortiz
Landon Powell
Max Stassi

It will be interesting to see if any of the invitees can force their way onto the roster. Merkin Valdez, who spent last season with the Texas Rangers, seems like a good candidate to be able to break into the uncertain bullpen situation in Oakland.
