GOODYEAR — The Dodgers made a few more roster cuts after Monday’s loss to the Indians, reassigning pitchers Patrick Schuster and Madison Younginer to minor league camp.

With the moves, the Dodgers have 51 players remaining in big league camp, including 23 pitchers.

That number does not include Yimi Garcia, who is on the 60-day disabled list while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Garcia, it should be noted, played catch Monday for the first time since his October procedure, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

Both Schuster and Younginer were signed to minor league contracts in November that included a non-roster invitation to spring training.

Schuster is a 26-year-old southpaw who is especially tough on left-handed batters, holding them to just .171/.278/.232 last year with a 30.6% strikeout rate. He actually led the Dodgers with 10 appearances this spring, allowing one run in 7⅔ innings, with five strikeouts and three walks.

Younginer, a 26-year-old right-hander, appeared in nine Cactus League games this spring. He struck out nine in nine innings, while also allowing five runs on 11 hits.
