Meet the Mariners’ 2024 NRIs

Lookout Landing’s signature 40 in 40 series gives you an in-depth look at every member of the Mariners’ 40-man roster. But each year, the Mariners also invite a few dozen additional guys to Spring Training. They’re known as non-roster invitees, or NRIs. They tend to be a mix of (a) highly valued and near-MLB prospects and (b) veterans of varying degrees of wiliness. Some of them are here so that the Mariners can assess which minor-league level to start them at, some are hoping to break camp, and some are just here because someone’s got to play the eighth and ninth innings of these March exhibition games.
