Transactions leave Reds with 34 players


GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Reds made two more cuts Wednesday morning by sending right-handed pitcher Clay Hensley and left-hander Wilkin De La Rosa to the Minor League camp.

Cincinnati's spring roster has 34 players remaining, which means nine more transactions are needed to reach the 25-man limit for Opening Day.

Hensley, who was signed to a Minor League contract Feb. 11, had a 4.50 ERA in eight games, a decent spring where he walked two and struck out 15 with two home runs. De La Rosa spent most of 2012 at Double-A Pensacola and posted a 9.31 ERA in nine spring games with nine walks and 15 strikeouts.
