The Phillies trimmed their spring training roster Saturday by sending seven players to the minor leagues.
The group includes left-handed pitchers Kyle Dohy, Bailey Falter and Damon Jones, right-handed pitchers Mauricio Llovera, Adonis Medina and Francisco Morales and outfielder Simon Muzziotti.
All seven players are on the 40-man roster so they were technically optioned to the minors.
Morales and Muzziotti are among the team's top 10 prospects, according to Baseball America.
Minor-league camp does not technically open until April 1, but the Phillies have a full contingent of players participating in a mini-camp at their minor-league complex. The seven players optioned on Saturday will join that group.
