With the first big wave of cuts since the start of Spring Training, the Cardinals reduced their number of players in Major League camp to 49 on Monday.

Right-hander Angel Castro, outfielder Mike O’Neill and outfielder Rafael Ortega were optioned to the Triple-A Memphis roster. Joining them in minor league camp beginning on Tuesday will be Kurt Heyer, Boone Whiting, Patrick Wisdom, Carson Kelly, Casey Rasmus and Cody Stanley. Those six non-roster invitees were reassigned to minor league camp.

Marco Gonzales, as reported by yesterday, had already been sent out.
