Last week, the Oakland A's added top prospect Franklin Barreto to their prospect-laden non-roster invitee to spring training list. This week, the A's added another rising prospect in their system to that list: shortstop Richie Martin. Martin was the A's 2015 first-round pick and he will be attending his first spring training. Martin joins 2014 first-round pick Matt Chapman on the non-roster invitee list.
Martin spent his pro debut season with short-season Vermont. The Florida alum hit .237/.353/.342 in 51 games for the Lake Monsters.
Below is the full non-roster invitee list, as of January 25, 2016:
