More cuts

Mar 12, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

VIERA, Fla. — One day after reducing their spring training roster by eight, the Nationals have made a couple more cuts. Catcher Devin Ivany and first baseman Josh Whitesell have been re-assigned to minor-league camp this morning.

Neither move comes as a shock. Ivany, 27, has never played above Class AA but has been a mainstay in camp the last several years as an extra catcher. Whitesell, also 27, rejoined the organization this winter after being let go by the Diamondbacks and is probably slated to play first base at Class AAA Syracuse this season.

    Thanks for the update, no surprise as you said. Does it look like they will play today?

    When is Tyler Walker getting his walking papers?

    Balister, Gonzalez, Walker, Maxwell and Tavaris need to go today as well.
