The Phillies announced their first roster cuts of the Spring, moving six pitchers in all to Triple-A and Double-A camps, the team announced Saturday.

JoJo Romero, Adonis Medina, and Cristopher Sanchez, who are members of the 40-man roster, were officially optioned off of the active MLB roster and placed onto minor league teams; Romero to the IronPigs, Medina and Sanchez to the Fighin’ Phils. Kyle Dohy, Damon Jones, and Zach Warren were all non-roster invitees who are not yet on the 40-man, so their placement is simply a reassignment to minor league camp with team assignments still TBA.

None of these six really stood much of a chance of making the team for Opening Day, but each holds promise for the organization and may end up making their debuts at some point in 2020.

The Phillies are down to 64 players in Major League Spring Training with just under three weeks to go before Opening Day.
