The Cincinnati Reds announce spring training cuts

John Fay just tweeted out the roster cuts that have been made in spring training.

These players have been optioned to Louisville:

  • RHP Carlos Contreras
  • RHP Daniel Corcino
  • LHP David Holmberg
  • OF Ryan LaMarre
  • OF Donald Lutz
  • RHP Chad Rogers

These players have been optioned to Pensacola:

  • OF Juan Duran
  • LHP Ismael Guillon
  • OF Yorman Rodriguez

These players have been assigned to minor league camp:

  • RHP Tim Crabbe
  • RHP Michael Lorenzen
  • INF Rey Navarro
  • C Rossmel Perez
  • C/INF Max Ramirez
  • RHP Robert Stephenson

The Reds also released infielder Henry Rodriguez. In a little over a month he has gone from on the 40-man roster to outright released.

Being optioned to a team does not always mean that a player will open the season with that team. Most of the option spots look correct with the exception of Ismael Guillon, who I would be very surprised to see skip over Bakersfield entirely after the 2013 season that he had.
