Top 3 prospects among 22 NRIs for Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will bring 22 non-roster players to Major League Spring Training camp, including top prospects Cody Bellinger, Alex Verdugo and Willie Calhoun and division-clinching walk-off hero Charlie Culberson.

Bellinger, a smooth-swinging first baseman who can also play the outfield, is the top-ranked prospect in the Dodgers' farm system, according to Verdugo, an outfielder, is ranked second in the organization, while second baseman Calhoun is ranked third.

There will be nine non-roster pitchers, including Brandon Morrow, who was signed on Wednesday. Among the pitchers are prospects Josh Sborz (No. 14) and Trevor Oaks (No. 28).

Culberson, who made the club as a non-roster player last year, was outrighted off the roster in the offseason. He became a part of Dodgers lore when his walk-off homer in Vin Scully's last Dodger Stadium broadcast clinched the club's fourth consecutive National League West title.
