Spring training cuts: Brewers outright Jose De La Torre

The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster.

USA TODAY Sports

Following Friday's game the Brewers cleared another spot on the spring training camp roster, outrighting reliever Jose De La Torre to Nashville. He had a 6.00 ERA over four outings in camp, walking three batters and hitting one in three innings. He actually had yet to allow a hit this spring.

The Brewers claimed De La Torre off waivers from the Red Sox last September after he pitched in five games for Boston during the regular season. The Red Sox recently announced they have a World Series ring waiting for him, and the Brewers will be in Boston when they hand those rings out at their home opener. Now, however, it appears JDLT will be busy with the Sounds.

This move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster, creating a spot for a non-roster invitee to be added if they make the team out of spring training. Candidates for that spot include Mark Reynolds, Lyle Overbay, Zach Duke and Donovan Hand.

With this move the Brewers are down to 42 players in major league camp. They started with 58.
