Josh Winckowski, right-handed pitcher which Boston acquired Wednesday in the trade of Andrew Benintendi, received an invitation. Righty too Frank German, Boston’s hope for Yankees’ Adam Ottavino in January.

In all, Boston has invited 30 non-roster players to camp.

Casas, Downs, Duran, Yorke, and Ward are all among the top 10 organizational prospects.

Baseball America has Casas, a 21-year-old power-hitting first baseman, ranked No.47 on his Top 100 list. He ranked Downs, the Mookie Betts trade’s top prospect, No.71.

The Red Sox will hold their first practice for pitchers and receivers on February 18. The first full practice will take place at the JetBlue Park complex on February 22.
