The Oakland Athletics pared down their roster Sunday, optioning outfielders Grant Green and Michael Taylor to Triple-A Sacramento. Both players were in the running for a spot on the opening day roster this spring, but could make an appearance with the parent club at some point during the season.
The Athletics also reassigned pitcher Brian Gordon, catcher Dave Freitas, first baseman Scott Moore, shortstop Dawrin Perez and outfielder Michael Choice to their minor-league camp.
Angels shortstop prospect Darwin Perez was reassigned to the team's minor-league camp on Sunday. Perez, a non-roster invitee, appeared in three games during Cactus League play and finished hitless in two at-bats with a walk.
