CLEARWATER, Fla. - The Phillies made five more cuts Tuesday, jettisoning righthanders Tyler Cloyd and B.J. Rosenberg, lefthander Mauricio Robles, outfielder Tyson Gillies and catcher Sebastian Valle to minor league camp.
Valle and Gillies had just arrived back from the World Baseball Classic, where they both took part in the melee between teams Mexico and Canada.
Here's what we saw from each of the players who were cut:
* Righthander Tyler Cloyd: He was sidetracked by a bout with forearm tightness but appeared in three games, logging five innings and allowing six runs, all earned, with two strikeouts and two walks. He recorded nine groundouts, four outs in the air, and one home runs. He will start the season at Triple A Lehigh Valley and will be one of the top candidates for a promotion if injuries strike.
