Cardinals cut nine from camp
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 MLB.com yesterday, had already been sent out.
