The Dodgers made their second round of spring training roster cuts on Tuesday, sending seven players to minor league camp, including pitcher Garrett Cleavinger were optioned.
Pitchers Mike Kickham, Nick Robertson, and James Pazos, catcher Tim Federowicz, and infielders Rangel Ravelo and Matt Davidson, all non-roster invitees, were reassigned to minor league camp.
There are six non-roster invitees remaining in big league camp, with Jimmy Nelson the one likely going to make the team. Also still in camp are Brandon Morrow, who won’t be ready any time soon, along with Enny Romero, Steve Berman, Andy Burns, and Elliot Soto.
After these moves, the Dodgers have 38 players remaining in camp, including 20 pitchers. But functionally, in terms of the opening day roster, it’s really only 15 pitchers. Tommy Kahnle is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, Joe Kelly, Brusdar Graterol, and Mitch White, along with Morrow, aren’t expected to pitch in a game this spring and won’t be ready by opening day. So that means only two pitching roster cuts are left if the Dodgers decide to roll with 13 pitchers, and only one more cut if they opt for 14 pitchers.
