Heaney among six players sent to Minors | angels.com

The Angels cut six players after Friday’s game, optioning starter Andrew Heaney and infielders Josh Rutledge, Grant Green and Kyle Kubitza to Triple-A Salt Lake, and reassigning reliever Scott Snodgress and power hitter Marc Krauss to the Minor Leagues.

The Angels’ Spring Training roster is now at 32 players. Snodgress and Krauss will be with the team at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, for the finale of the Freeway Series, but won’t make the Opening Day roster.

Krauss getting optioned could be a sign that Efren Navarro, another left-handed-hitting outfielder and first baseman, has locked down the last spot off the Angels’ bench. The moves also confirmed that Johnny Giavotella will be the starting second baseman and Taylor Featherston, a Rule 5 pick that hasn’t played above Double-A, will be the backup infielder.

Mets plan to carry eighth reliever - Mets Blog - ESPN

The four-man bench seemingly would include John Mayberry Jr., Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Ruben Tejada and Anthony Recker, with Eric Campbell an undeserving snub.
