For die-hard Oakland A's fans, no spring training trip can be complete without a visit to the A's minor league facility at Papago Park. Inside, find out the details of the A's 2013 minor league spring training camp, including the roster and dates for the A's minor league mini-camp and the game schedule for the A's MiLB spring training.

Last season, the Oakland A's added a new wrinkle to their minor league spring training camp: a mini-camp that began a few weeks before the rest of minor league camp. The mini-camp is designed to bring in young players the organization wants to get a little more one-on-one instruction, as well as advanced prospects who will be able to help out in big league camp if the A's need extra players in the early part of the big league spring training schedule.

The first mini-camp in 2012 was a success and the A's are bringing it back for a second season. Twenty-seven players will be reporting for the mini-camp. Pitchers and catchers report for mini-camp on February 12 and their first workout will be February 13. The mini-camp report date for position players is February 18 and the first full mini-camp workout is February 19. All workouts will be held at the A's minor league complex at Papago Park in Phoenix.

There are 16 pitchers, four catchers, four infielders and three outfielders on the roster for spring mini-camp. The roster is below:
