Seattle will head to spring training in 2014 with a revamped roster headlined by Robinson Cano. But the club still has some open roster spots up for competition, and the club announced today that 19 players will be non-roster invitees to spring.

The Mariners today announced that the club extended invites to 19 non-40-man roster players for big league camp in 2014.
