White Sox trim 12 from spring roster

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The White Sox cut the number of players in Major League camp to 39 on Wednesday when they made roster moves that involved 12 players.

The White Sox optioned four pitchers to Triple-A Charlotte. They were right-handers Lance Broadway, Dewon Day, Charlie Haeger and Oneli Perez.

None had proved particularly effective in Cactus League outings.

The club also optioned right-hander Lucas Harrell to Double-A Birmingham and granted left-hander Carlos Vasquez's request for his unconditional release.

Reassigned to Minor League camp were infielders Chris Getz, Royce Huffman, Jeff Liefer and Mike Rouse, outfielder Miguel Negron and catcher Ryan Smith.

With these moves, the breakdown of players left in White Sox camp looks like this: 18 pitchers, five catchers, 10 infielders and six outfielders.
