Spring Training Moves: Five Sent To Minors

The Rays announced the following roster moves on Sunday:

Optioned to minor league camp (players on 40-man roster): none.

Reassigned to the minor leagues (not on 40-man): RHRP Jhonny Nunez, RHRP Romulo Sanchez, 3B Matt Mangini, C Craig Albernaz, and OF Brad Coon.

Also, based on general manager Andrew Friedman's comments today I moved RHRP Matt Bush off the Bulls active roster and into a restricted spot on our Depth Chart. While the Rays have not yet made an official move there is no reason for us to pretend he will play for Durham this year. I slid RHRP Marquis Fleming up from Montgomery into Bush's vacated spot.


  1. Went to the game against the Marlins yesterday and was excited to finally see this Sanchez guy. He was throwing gas and made hitters look silly. He did seem to overthrow a few times but it was effective as he struck out 3 in 2.0 IP. Maybe with Bush out of the picture this is the first flame thrower that gets the call if needed?

  2. Here's an open call to all regular contributors - please see today's Biscuit Crumbs blog ( and look at today's Minor League lineups - any comments? I notice that Wunderlich and Nommensen do not show up in any line-up. Are they hurt? I would expect Wunderlich to be at A+ andf Nommensen at be at AA this year.

    1. Tough to know until we see a few days' worth of lineups, could just be a day off.

  3. Bob, I agree about Sanchez, he is an impressive talent.
