Twins Spring Training 2012: 5 Sent To Minors

The Minnesota Twins on Thursday reassigned five players to Minor League camp, according to MLB.com.

The five players were pitchers Sam Deduno and Phil Dumatrait, catcher Danny Lehmann, outfielder Matt Carson and infielder Ray Chang.

Dumatrait, 30, posted a 3.92 ERA in 45 appearances with the Twins last year. He had a 6.00 ERA in six innings this spring, while Deduno had a 3.00 ERA in three innings this spring.

As for the position players: Lehman didn't have a hit and only had five at-bats in six appearance in the Grapefruit League, while Carson hit .077 in 11 games. Chang was hitting .273 in 11 games.

This was not the only personnel shuffling of the week. On Wednesday the Twins returned Rule 5 pick Terry Doyle to the White Sox, which, coupled with the five cuts Thursday, leaves them with 39 players in camp. Those 39 include 18 pitchers (three non-roster), 10 infielders (four non-roster), six outfielders (one non-roster) and five catchers (two non-roster).
