Dodgers make first spring cuts

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers made their first cuts of spring Sunday afternoon, re-assigning pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz and infielders Nick Evans, Ozzie Martinez and Dallas McPherson to Minor League camp.

McPherson, a former top prospect of the Angels, had the most Major League service time and was given an early look at first base. But the natural third baseman never looked comfortable and hit .154.
