In his fourth year with the New York Yankees organization, the expectations for Irondequoit's Cito Culver are growing. The shortstop was invited to spring training.

The 20-year-old Culver is one of 44 non-roster invitees headed to Tampa. Last season with Single A Charleston, in 122 games, Culver batted .215 with 66 runs and 22 stolen bases.

Culver was the Yankees's first round pick in 2010. Position players are scheduled to report to spring training on February 17.
