Reds Trim Roster: Part Deux

Eight more Reds' hopefuls left spring training camp yesterday, casualties of the second significant round of cuts.

Jimmy Journell and Ben Kozlowski join Anderson Machado, Aaron Herr, and Derek Wathan in the category of “reassigned to minor league camp.” I believe this just means that they weren't on the major league roster to begin with, so moving them around was just a matter of telling them where to show up in the morning.

Elizardo Ramirez and Ray Olmedo were on the roster, so sending them to Louisville required an option. I'm going to miss Olmedo, but I think he'll be back. The Lizard scares me a little, but I imagine the Reds can't afford not to give him another chance. Also, Travis Chick, Phil Dumatrait, Miguel Perez, and Joey Votto were optioned to Chattanooga.
