Yesterday, there was another round of cuts in spring training… the big one that usually comes earlier in March, but was most likely delayed this year due to the bevy of injuries. In the latest transaction post from Baseball America today, we learned the following Nationals minor-leaguers have been released:
- OF Garrett Gordon (Auburn)
- RHP D.J. Jauss (GCL)
- RHP Jean Ramirez (GCL)
- UT Mike McQuillan (Potomac)
- LHP Brandon Sisk (Offseason pickup)
The closest thing to a surprise was the release of Jean Ramirez, but that’s primarily because of his age (20). This is the flip side to the free-agent signings in the offseason — to make room, some guys are going to be let go, which for most means their days as a pro baseball player are over.
