Top prospect d'Arnaud among roster cuts
DUNEDIN, Fla. -- There are now just 41 players remaining in camp for the Blue Jays following the latest series of cuts on Sunday.

Right-hander Deck McGuire, right-hander Jerry Gil and catcher A.J. Jimenez were returned to Minor League Spring Training while first baseman Mike McDade and Travis d'Arnaud were optioned to that side as well.

The moves do not come as a surprise with just over two weeks remaining until Opening Day. Toronto now has three catchers, 11 infielders, seven outfielders and 20 pitches remaining in camp.

The most notable departure on Sunday was d'Arnaud, who is the club's No. 1 ranked prospect according to MLB.com. The 22-year-old d'Arnaud is slated to begin the year with Triple-A Las Vegas after an MVP season in the Eastern League where he hit .311 with 21 homers and 78 RBIs for Double-A New Hampshire.
