White Sox make eight roster moves

3/12/2014

The Chicago White Sox made eight roster moves in advance of Tuesday's Cactus League game against the San Francisco Giants, leaving 47 players remaining in major league camp.

Left-handed pitcher Charlie Leesman, who pitched in eight games with the White Sox last season (one start), was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte. Outfielders Jared Mitchell and Trayce Thompson were optioned to Double-A Birmingham.

Five players were reassigned to minor-league camp: Catcher Miguel Gonzalez, right-handers Deunte Heath and Omar Poveda, left-hander Scott Snodgress and outfielder Keenyn Walker. Those players will have their minor-league teams decided at a later time.

Of the 47 remaining players in big league camp, 23 are pitches, four are catchers, 14 are infielders and six are outfielders.
