Nine players were cut from big league camp this afternoon.

RHP Andrew Brackman
RHP D.J. Mitchell
RHP Christian Garcia
RHP Kevin Whelan
LHP Wilkins Arias
LHP Kei Igawa
LHP Wilkin De La Rosa
LHP Jeremy Bleich
C Kyle Higashioka

The three players on the 40-man were optioned to specific teams.┬áBrackman was optioned to Tampa, Garcia to Trenton and De La Rosa to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Previous indications were that De La Rosa would open in the Trenton rotation, so his assignment might change between now and opening day. For now, he’s with the Triple-A group.

Two other players have been cut, but those moves aren’t being announced because those players are on the road in Lakeland. They will either be announced later tonight or in the morning.
