• D-Backs make a slew of cuts

    News: The D-Backs optioned infielder Pedro Ciriaco and pitchers Leyson Septimo, Daniel Stange and Cesar Valdez to minor league camp Monday. The club also reassigned pitchers Tommy Layne, Kyler Newby, Wes Roemer, Bryan Shaw and Matt Torra, catcher Konrad Schmidt, infielder Mark Hallberg and outfielder Collin Cowgill to minor league camp. The team now has a total of 46 players in camp, including 23 pitchers, five catchers, 11 infielders and seven outfielders.
    Analysis: Stange is the most likely to help the D-Backs this season, but none of these players project to play in the majors this season. Don't pick them in Fantasy at this point.
