MIAMI (AP) -- Right-hander Kevin Slowey is among 22 nonroster players to receive spring training invitations from the Miami Marlins.
Slowey signed a minor league contract. He pitched in 22 games for the Marlins last year and went 3-6 with an ERA of 4.11.
Other nonroster players receiving invitations included left-hander Andrew Heaney, a top prospect, and right-hander Jesus Sanchez, who has a career record of 23-34. Also invited were left-hander Josh Spence, infielder Juan Diaz, and outfielders Matt Angle and Joe Benson.
Pitchers and catchers will hold their first workout Feb. 16 in Jupiter, Fla.
