Dodgers send Matt Magill, Steve Ames, Matt Palmer to minor league camp

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA

The Dodgers now have 51 players in major league camp after sending three pitchers to the minor league side Monday.

The Dodgers on Monday trimmed their roster a bit, by optioning Matt Magill and Steve Ames, and reassigning Matt Palmer, all to minor league camp. Monday is the first full squad workout on the minor league side.

Both Magill and Ames were in their first major league spring training camp, as both were added to the 40-man roster in November. Magill struck out eight in four Cactus League innings, and allowed one unearned run. He also pitched in a 'B' game against the Reds on Sunday on the minor league side at Camelback Ranch, and pitched three scoreless innings with three strikeouts.

Ames also threw a scoreless inning in the 'B' game on Sunday, and in three Cactus League contests allowed two runs in 2⅔ innings, with two strikeouts and a hit batter.

Palmer wins the hard luck award of the spring, as he injured his left knee Saturday while walking and will have surgery on Tuesday in Phoenix to repair a torn meniscus. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

With the moves, the Dodgers now have 51 players in major league camp, including 13 non-roster invitees.
