Dodgers Spring Training: Carson, Jensen Sent To Minor League Camp
The Los Angeles Dodgers are just over two weeks from taking the field on Opening Day at Dodger Stadium and needing to have their 25-man roster in place.
The club continued to trim at the number of players in camp as they announced Matt Carson and Kyle Jensen were reassigned to Minor League camp prior to Sunday’s game with the Cleveland Indians.
Both Carson and Jensen were with the Dodgers’ travel team for Big League Weekend in San Antonio and each saw action in both games. The former went 1-for-6 with a three-run home run and Jensen was 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Carson, signed to a Minor-League contract, was 4-for-19 (.211) with two home runs, one double and seven RBIs in nine Cactus League games. His brightest moment thus far in spring was an eighth-inning grand slam on March 14 that gave the Dodgers a comfortable lead over the Indians.
Jensen went 8-for-20 (.400) with two home runs, one double and six RBIs during his time in Major League camp. The Dodgers traded for Jensen in November, placed him on waivers in December and optioned him to Triple-A after he cleared.
With the latest moves, the Dodgers now have 41 players in big league camp. Though that number includes Brandon Beachy and Chris Withrow, who both are on the 60-day disabled list.
