Dodgers shift Barden, Luna, Moore to Minors camp


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers reassigned non-roster invitees Brian Barden, Omar Luna and Jeremy Moore to Minor League camp on Tuesday, reducing the numbers of players in Major League camp to 48.

Barden, an infielder who has had callups with three clubs over four previous seasons, was hitting .478, but there is no room for him with the surplus of infielders on the Dodgers roster.

Moore missed the 2012 season with hip labrum surgery and needs to more reps than big league camp can offer. He was scheduled to appear in Tuesday night's starting lineup, but was replaced by Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig.
