Lillibridge, Wilson, Kouzmanoff and Rodriguez also received invitations to spring training. Kouzmanoff is the most notable of these players, having hit 15-plus homers in four straight seasons from 2007 to 2010. But the 32-year-old hasn't played in the majors since 2011, which he split between the Athletics and the Rockies.
