PHOENIX, Ariz. -- The Dodgers made their first personnel moves of spring training Sunday, reassigning utility player Nick Evans, infielders Dallas McPherson and Ozzie Martinez and left-handed pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz to minor league camp.

Evans, a 27-year-old who was born not far from the Dodgers' spring complex, appeared in eight Cactus League games, collecting three hits in 12 at-bats and scoring twice.

McPherson, a 32-year-old former Angel, had a single and double in 13 at-bats (.154) but also committed an error.

Martinez, a 24-year-old Puerto Rican, had a single in nine at-bats (.111) while De La Cruz, a 24-year-old Dominican, got into three games, giving up four runs on three hits and three walks while retiring five batters.

Ironically, De La Cruz struck out the only hitter he faced Sunday to earn the win.

Pitchers and catchers report to minor league camp Tuesday.

The Dodgers now have 55 players in major league camp.
