The Milwaukee Brewers have announced several of the non-roster invitees headed to big-league spring training in Arizona next month, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

While none of the players are expected to make the squad out of the gate, Morris, Bradley and Jungmann were all listed among the club's top 10 prospects for 2012 at MLB.com.
Morris, 24, walloped his way through the Brewers' Double-A affiliate last season, hitting .303/.357/.563 with 28 home runs in 136 games while manning first base.
Bradley, 22, was a first-round pick in the 2011 draft and has only one professional season under his belt. The tall left-hander out of the Georgia Institute of Technology amassed an unsightly 5.53 ERA and 5.0 K/9 rate in 107⅓ innings of High-A ball in 2012.
Jungmann, 23, was also a 2011 first-round pick for the Brewers. The young right-hander spent the 2012 season on the same squad as Bradley but fared much better, posting a 3.53 ERA and 5.8 K/9 rate in 153 innings across 26 starts.
