FIrst cuts: Nevarez, Paduch, Patterson, Schenk
The Rays made their first cuts of the spring on Saturday, reassigning to minor-league camp four pitchers they brought in to help get through last weekend's split squad openers.
Sent out were:
RHP Matt Nevarez
RHP Jim Paduch
LHP Jimmy Patterson
LHP Neil Schenk
They made the move on Saturday as minor-league camp opened, though the four don't have to report to Monday.
