The biggest takeaway is veteran catcher Jonathan Lucroy not making it onto the list. However, according to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com, Lucroy was left out because his contract is being adjusted and he will be added later on.

Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report for spring training 2.0 on July 3. Opening Day is expected to be July 23.
