Phillies trim spring training roster, send 7 players to minor leagues


The Phillies trimmed their spring training roster Saturday by sending seven players to the minor leagues.

The group includes left-handed pitchers Kyle Dohy, Bailey Falter and Damon Jones, right-handed pitchers Mauricio Llovera, Adonis Medina and Francisco Morales and outfielder Simon Muzziotti.

All seven players are on the 40-man roster so they were technically optioned to the minors.

Morales and Muzziotti are among the team's top 10 prospects, according to Baseball America.

Minor-league camp does not technically open until April 1, but the Phillies have a full contingent of players participating in a mini-camp at their minor-league complex. The seven players optioned on Saturday will join that group.
