White Sox announce nine camp cuts
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- With 10 days remaining before their season opener, the White Sox brought their 2011 look into sharper focus Tuesday morning by trimming nine players from their Spring Training camp.

Optioned to Triple-A Charlotte prior to Tuesday afternoon's Cactus League game against the Mariners were outfielder Alejandro De Aza, right-hander Gregory Infante and catcher Tyler Flowers.

Also reassigned to Minor League camp were six players who had been in the big league camp as non-roster invitees: right-handed pitchers Brian Bruney, Jeff Gray, Josh Kinney and Shane Lindsay; infielder Dallas McPherson; and outfielder Jordan Danks.

The moves left the White Sox with 29 players remaining in the Major League camp, including the last of the 15 originally invited non-roster candidates: catcher Donny Lucy and outfielder Lastings Milledge.

Milledge was in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game in Peoria, Ariz., as he continues his competition with Brent Lillibridge for the last seat on manager Ozzie Guillen's bench.
