The Chicago White Sox lightened the load in the major league clubhouse Wednesday as they made their first moves of the spring by reassigning seven players to minor league camp.

Right-handers Chris Bassitt, Parker Frazier, and Brian Omogrosso had their lockers moved to the minor-league clubhouse down the hallway, while infielder Mike McDade, outfielder Denis Phipps, left-hander Mauricio Robles and catcher Kevan Smith were also sent out.

The moves left the White Sox with 55 players remaining in big league camp: 27 pitchers, five catchers, 14 infielders and nine outfielders.

Of the players reassigned, Omogrosso, Phipps and Robles were the only ones with major league experience. Omogrosso pitched in 29 games over the past two seasons with the White Sox, Phipps played in eight games with the Cincinnati Reds in 2012 and Robles pitched in three games for the Philadelphia Phillies last season.
