Travis, Marrero, Swihart Cut From Red Sox Roster

The Red Sox cut their roster to 38 players today by sending C Blake Swihart and SS Devin Marrero to AAA Pawtucket and reassigning 1B/DH Sam Travis to minor league camp. Travis, who was having his second straight hot Spring, is tabbed as the #4 prospect in the organization. Both Swihart and Marrero have minor league options left—but Swihart has the best chance of cracking the major league roster if injury or poor performance arises with either Sandy Leon or Christian Vazquez. Among the 38 remaining players on the roster, six are non-roster invitees.
