ST. PAUL

The Minnesota Twins have invited 25 non-roster players to spring training, including left-hander Phil Dumatrait, who pitched out of the bullpen for the Twins last season, and infield prospect Brian Dozier.

Dumatrait is one of 10 pitchers and Dozier one of seven infielders invited to train on the major league side when camp opens Feb. 18 in Fort Myers, Fla. Among five catchers are Chris Hermann, the Twins' sixth-round draft pick in 2009, and Rene Rivera, who spent much of 2011 in Minnesota.

Former major league players Eddie Guardado, Jim Kaat, Tony Oliva, Terry Steinbach, Rod Carew and Paul Molitor will join the regular major and minor league coaching staffs.

Other players invited include one-time major league pitchers Aaron Thompson, Jason Bulger, Jared Burton, Sam Deduno, Luis Perdomo, Daryl Thompson and P.J. Walter, and Brendan Wise, who spent most of 2011 at the Tigers' Class AAA franchise in Toledo; catchers Danny Lehmann and J.R. Towles, who has major league experience with Houston (2007-11); former major league infielders Aaron Bates and Sean Burroughs; and outfielders Matt Carson, Brian Dinkelman and Wilkin Ramirez.
