Following a few roster moves last week and the release of Michael Olmsted earlier today, the Brewers made their first big round of roster moves after today's game against the White Sox.

These moves were first reported by Mike Vassallo this afternoon.  Here is the list of roster moves:

Returned to minor league camp: Kentrail Davis, Hector Gomez, Taylor Green, Mitch Haniger, David Goforth

Optioned to Triple-A Nashville: Hunter Morris, Jason Rogers, Jimmy Nelson, Ariel Pena

Optioned to Double-A Huntsville: Brooks Hall, Kevin Shackelford

None of these moves are very surprising, though some of these players may have had a chance to compete for a job.  With the roster moves, the Brewers now have 44 players remaining in camp (22 pitchers, 4 catchers, 12 infielders, 6 outfielders).  With the off day here and minor league games about to start, the timing was right for the first round of cuts to happen today.
