Filed under: Reds invite 11 to big league camp

Mark Sheldon reports that Reds have 11 non-roster invitees to camp this year, including outfielders Laynce Nix and Darnell McDonald, catchers Ryan Jorgensen and Chris "Daddy Mackski" Kroski, infielders Wes Bankston, Kevin Barker and Luis Bolivar, and pitchers Aaron Fultz, Ron Flores, Jeff Kennard and Adam Pettyjohn.  These are all typical roster filler for Spring Training, with only Fultz and Nix as serious candidates for breaking camp with the team.

Notably absent from the invitee list are minor leaguers Drew Stubbs, Chris Valaika, and Todd Frazier.  Anybody have any guess as to why?
