Austin Romine will not be on the major league roster. He was the first truly significant cut of big league camp. Here are today’s moves.

· Optioned and LHP Francisco Rondon, RHPs Dellin Betances and Brett Marshall, and C Austin Romine to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

· Optioned LHPs Manny Banuelos and Nik Turley, RHP Jose Ramirez and OF Ramon Flores to Double-A Trenton.

· Reassigned RHP Chase Whitley, C J.R. Murphy and 1B Luke Murton to minor league camp.

The last three were “reassigned” only because they aren’t on the 40-man roster and can’t be optioned. That’s the only difference.
