Today, the Dodgers had a series of roster cuts. Scott Elbert was optioned to minor league camp, after all of 3.1 spring innings, two innings of which were in a "B" game last Monday.
Rule 5 draft pick Armando Zerpa was returned to the Red Sox, bringing the total number of players in big league camp to 55. With Zerpa now gone, the 40-man roster now has 39 players. Another, at least temporary spot on the 40-man roster might open up if Ronald Belisario starts the season on the restricted list, suspended without pay. "I thought that the chances of being here when I got back were pretty good," manager Joe Torre said today, "I think he would be a long shot for the Opening Day roster."
Here are the lineups:
