C Garrett Stubbs (Phillies) is 1-for-2 with an RBI and 2 walks in Spring Training

A total of 21* Jews are at an MLB Spring Training camp this season, including 10 pitchers and 12 position players (see list below).

Seventeen of the 22 are there by virtue of being on their team’s 40-man roster. The remaining five, including veteran outfielder and recent free-agent signee Kevin Pillar (Diamondbacks), are non-roster players who were summoned to MLB camp.

Jewish pitchers are off to a fast start. Through February 27, they have combined for 2-1 record and 0.90 ERA on 4 hits, one walk, and 12 strikeouts over 10 innings.

P Evan Kravetz (Reds), a 6-foot-8-inch southpaw who attended Rice University and finished the 2023 season in Triple-A, is the only member of Class of 2024 who is making his MLB Spring Training debut.
