Six players were re-assigned to minor-league camp, including infielders Ty Kelly and Nate Tenbrik, catcher Mike Dowd and pitchers Logan Kensing, Matt Palmer and Nick Hill.
"They're all tough," manager Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com Tuesday. "Any time you've got to tell a young man that his dream is not going to come to fruition at this particular time, that's tough. They all work hard, they give us all they've got. I was very pleased. Like I told all of them, it wasn't performance based. The numbers are such that we have to start moving guys out, but their performances will not be forgotten, and at some point, they'll be back."
Choi hit .295/.394/.535 with 18 home runs and 85 RBI in 424 at-bats across three levels last season. Romero hit .277/.331/.448 with 11 home runs and 74 RBI in 375 at-bats with Triple-A Tacoma. Jones hit .275/.347/.419 with six home runs, 46 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 363 at-bats with Double-A Jackson.
