The Rays made their latest, and biggest set of cuts so far this spring.
The only surprise on the list (via Marc Topkin) might be Dirk Hayhurst, who seemed like a legitimate candidate for one of the final bullpen spots. The other big names on the cut list today are Tim Beckham, Desmond Jennings, Chris Archer, and Robinson Chirinos. Jennings and Chirinos are likely to be back with the Rays at some point this season. Archer might still be a year away depending on whether the Rays keep him as a starting pitcher or move him to the bullpen.
Other cuts today were Alex Cobb, Dane De La Rosa, Brandon Gomes, Nevin Ashley, Leslie Anderson, Russ Canzler, JJ Furmaniak, Daniel Mayora and Stephen Vogt.
