VIERA, Fla. (AP) -First-round draft pick Ross Detwiler and Mike Bacsik, who gave up Barry Bonds' record-breaking 756th homer, were among 16 players the Washington Nationals reassigned to minor league camp at spring training Wednesday.
Left-handers Detwiler, the No. 6 overall pick in June's amateur draft, Bacsik, Josh Smoker, Mike Hinckley and Charlie Manning, and right-handers Tristan Crawford, Ismael Ramirez and Jim Ed Warden were the pitchers sent to minor league camp.
Also reassigned: catcher Devin Ivany; infielders William Bergolla, Yurendell De Caster and Antonio Perez; and outfielders Roger Bernadina, Frank Diaz, Tommy Murphy and Jorge Padilla.
The Nationals also assigned two players to big league camp: right-hander Adam Carr and shortstop Ian Desmond.
The moves trim Washington's spring roster from 76 to 62 players.
