The moves trim the Dodgers roster down to 48 players left in big league camp.

The Dodgers on Tuesday cut three more players, as they assigned non-roster players Brian Barden, Jeremy Moore, and Omar Luna to minor league camp. The moves leave the Dodgers with 48 players left in major league camp, including 10 non-roster invitees.

Moore impressed in his short time in camp, hitting .333 (8-for-24) with five doubles and is able to play all three outfield positions. But with Tony Gwynn Jr. also under contract, though also not on the 40-man roster, Moore had competition among left-handed outfielders trying to make the roster.

Barden played pretty much all over in camp, getting into Cactus League games at first base, second base, third base, left field, and right field. He also hit .478/.538/.565 (11-for-23) in limited duty, and will now likely find a home somewhere in Triple-A Albuquerque's lineup.

Luna hit .313/.389/.313 (5-for-16 with two walks) in 11 Cactus League contests, while playing games at second base, third base, and shortstop.

Moore was originally scheduled to be in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds. Instead, Yasiel Puig starts in his place, in left field. Here is the new Dodgers lineup:

Gordon SS
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Gonzalez 1B
Ethier RF
Cruz 3B
Federowicz C
Puig LF
Beckett P
