   The Indians have invited five more non-roster players to major-league spring training camp.
   Among the group is one of the few power-hitters in the Tribe farm system: first baseman Luis Aguilar, 22, who played at Carolina and Akron last year, batting a combined .280 with 31 doubles, 15 home runs and 71 RBI in 440 at-bats.
   Also invited to big-league camp were right-handers Presont Guilmet and Matt Langwell, catcher Roberto Perez and left-hander Giovanni Soto.
   Guilmet, 25, tied for the Eastern League lead in saves with 24 in 29 opportunities as the Aeros’ closer. Langwell split the season between Akron and Columbus, compiling a combined record of 4-0 and 2.74 earned-run average in 42 relief appearances. Perez, 24, batted .212 with one homer and 31 RBI IN 283 at-bats and threw out 41 percent of would-be base stealers at Akron. Soto, 21, was 6-9 with a 2.93 ERA in 22 starts for the Aeros. He threw s no-hitter against Altoona in July.
