CHICAGO -- With 25 days to go before pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Arizona, the Chicago White Sox announced 21 invitees to big league camp.

Dylan Axelrod, Brian Omogrosso and Hector Gimenez, all of whom played for the White Sox in 2013, will return this year on minor-league contracts.

Axelrod started the season strong as a member of the starting rotation, before fading badly later in the year. He went 4-11 in 2013 with a 5.68 ERA while making 20 starts among his 30 appearances. Omogrosso made 12 appearances with an ERA over 9.00, while Gimenez had two home runs and 10 RBIs in 68 at-bats.

Other players on minor-league contracts to be invited to big-league camp were pitchers Parker Frazier, Omar Poveda, Zach Putnam, David Purcey, Mauricio Robles, infielder Alex Liddi and outfielder Denis Phipps.

The invite list also included 11 prospects from the White Sox’s system. Pitching prospects were Chris Bassitt, Chris Beck, Cody Winiarski and Scott Snodgress. Invited infielders included Micah Johnson, Mike McDade and Andy Wilkins, along with outfielders Blake Tekotte and Keenyn Walker. Extra camp catchers included Miguel Gonzalez and Kevan Smith.
