…Spring Training! What did you think I was going to say, Christmas? Pfft, that day is just a mere speed bump in baseball fan’s lives known as ‘Off season’. Either way, the Yankees released their non-roster invitee list and it looks something like this:

OF Marcus Thames, LHP Wilkins Arias, LHP Jeremy Bleich, OF Colin Curtis, RHP Grant Duff, OF Reid Gorecki, C Kyle Higashioka, RHP Jason Hirsh, LHP Kei Igawa, RHP Zach McAllister, C Jesus Montero, C PJ Pilittere, LHP Royce Ring, C Mike Rivera, C Austin Romine, RHP Amaury Sanit, RHP Zack Segovia, OF Jon Weber, RHP Kevin Whelan and OF David Winfree.

Tell me, are you as excited to see Kei Igawa pitch to Marcus Thames in intersquad games? You’re not? Then you must not be a true Yankees fan then. I kid, regardless, 9 days until Spring Training.

From the LoHud Yankees Blog:

“Once a highly-touted prospect in the Cardinals system, Gorecki’s career momentarily stalled in Double-A. He played just 21 Triple-A games in the Cardinals’ system, but he got his career going again with the Braves. Last season, in the pitching friendly International League, he hit .286 with nine home runs, 27 doubles, six triples and 14 stolen bases. He made his major league debut during the 2009 season, getting just 25 at-bats with the Braves. He has played all three outfield positions, primarily center field.

Barring a big spring training, Gorecki will almost certainly open the season with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as a regular in the outfield with Colin Curtis and previous free agent signing, Jon Weber.”

Gorecki was actually born in Queens, NY and grew up in East Rockaway, NY. The guy is 29 years-old and has never really been able to stay at the Major League level.

His 2009 MiLB Season: 371AB .286AVG 9HR 49RBI 14SB .351OBP .464SLG .815OPS

Reid has an invite to spring training and he has the chance to impress the Yankees organization.
