GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Rockies optioned five players to Minor League camp on Friday. Just one of them, right-handed reliever Will Harris, appeared in the Majors last season.
Harris, fellow right-handers Joe Gardner and Josh Sullivan, infielder Ryan Wheeler and outfielder Tim Wheeler were sent down.
The moves reduce the Rockies to 52 players in Major League camp, including 18 non-roster invitees.
