Cowley's Top 5 ...

Top 5 observations to come out of the SoxFest weekend:

5. Make room: Speedy outfielder Jerry Owens might not win a starting job out of camp, but he will undoubtedly win a spot on the 25-man roster. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen wants him to make it, as does GM Ken Williams.

The White Sox announced on Friday the 10 players invited to spring training camp as non-roster invitees, and while none of them have a chance to make the 25-man active roster, there are a few that will be watched with interest.

Infielders Brad Eldred, Royce Huffman, Jeff Liefer and Michael Rouse as well as catchers Paul Phillips and Ryan Smith, infielder/outfielder Jason Bourgeois, outfielder Miguel Negron and right-handed pitcher D.J. Carrasco will join infielder Chris Getz when camp begins in Tucson, Ariz. next month.
