Indians Reduce Roster By Eight Players
Today the Indians reduced their spring training roster by eight players. Right-hander Jess Todd was optioned to Triple-A Columbus, and left-hander Mike Gosling, right-hander Frank Herrmann, right-hander Josh Judy, right-hander Yohan Pino, catcher Damaso Espino, infielder Brian Bixler, and outfielder Shelly Duncan were all reassigned to minor league camp. 38 players remain in Major League camp, and 13 more players will need to be moved before opening day to meet the 25-man roster requirement.
As a reminder, when a player is "optioned" he is on the 40-man roster, and when a player is "reassigned" he is a non-40 man roster player being sent back to the minor leagues.
