GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Reds made two more cuts Friday, optioning catcher Tucker Barnhart and reliever Curtis Partch to Triple-A Louisville. That brought the Spring Training roster down to 42 players.

Barnhart batted .286 (4-for-14) with two doubles in nine games this spring.

Partch, who appeared in 14 big league games last season for the Reds, had a 1.93 ERA in five games. Over his 4 2/3 innings, he allowed five runs but only one was earned.
