PHOENIX – With the Triple-A season debut quickly approaching, Monday morning marked the first round of roster cuts for the Dodgers, according to ESPN.com.
Catcher Kyle Farmer and relief pitcher Jacob Rhame were sent to Triple-A camp but remain on the 40-man roster. Outfielder Henry Ramos and pitchers Ralston Cash and Josh Sborz have been reassigned, according to Eric Stephen of SBNation.
None of these roster moves are really a surprise. Farmer was just 1-10 with a walk and only played a total of 20 innings in the field. Rhame pitched just four innings, allowing eight runs, six hits and three walks.
Ramos who was 5-14 (.357) with a home run and triple so far this spring hasn’t played since Monday due to a groin strain. He is expected to miss four to six weeks.
After Monday’s cuts the Dodgers still have 57 players at their major league camp.
Manager Dave Roberts said he isn’t sure when the next round of cuts will come. Losing six players to the World Baseball Classic makes things a little more difficult.
