Banuelos, Sanchez among first round of roster cuts

2012 Season Preview: Control Freaks
Open Thread: Andy

Via Chad Jennings, both Manny Banuelos and Gary Sanchez have been reassigned to minor league camp. The first wave of roster cuts also includes pitchers Adam Miller, Dan Burawa, Ryan Pope, Brett Marshall, Graham Stoneburner, and Chase Whitley. Position players Corban Joseph, David Adams, J.R. Murphy, Kyle Higashioka, Zoilo Almonte, and Melky Mesa have also been sent to the back fields. David Phelps, Adam Warren, and D.J. Mitchell have been impressive so far, and they’ll each get to stick around a little longer.

    Wow. Two men enter. One man leaves.

    Didn’t feel like a ton of chances to make an impression. They’re certainly not handing anything to anyone Fran entitlement standpoint.

    I’m pretty sure Sanchez and Murphy won’t be going anywhere right away, especially with Romine still out and Martin out for a day or two. Extra catchers are needed.

    He used to be my handle, and I believe he could have some potential, so it sucks to see the new Melkman leave.
