PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Since the Devil Rays became the Rays prior to the 2008 season, four non-roster invitees have made the Opening Day roster.

The list includes Eric Hinske (2008), Juan Cruz ('11), and Shelley Duncan and Jamey Wright ('13).

The Rays cut their roster to 42 players after Tuesday night's game, which leaves the following non-roster invitees in camp: Erik Bedard, Mark Lowe, Juan Sandoval, Jayson Nix, Ray Olmedo, Wilson Betemit, Cole Figueroa, Jerry Sands, Mayo Acosta and Justin Christian.

The Rays had 25 non-roster invitees when camp opened.
