Some of the Yankees’ top prospects and a few veterans — including a former Met — are among the club’s 23 non-roster invitees for spring training, the team announced Tuesday.

Gleyber Torres, Clint Frazier, James Kaprielian, Justus Sheffield, Chance Adams and Dustin Fowler — all ranked in the top 10 in the Yankees’ organization by Baseball America — will get a chance to impress Yankees brass in Tampa, even if some of them need a little more seasoning to be major-league ready.

On the flip side, veterans such as former Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada and also will battle for a spot on the team’s Opening Day roster. Tejada has a .252 batting average and .327 on-base percentage in seven seasons and spent 2016 with the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.
