FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Twins made another round of cuts this morning, reassigning five players to Minor League camp.
The players sent to Minor League camp were right-hander Sam Deduno, left-hander Phil Dumatrait, catcher Danny Lehmann, infielder Ray Chang, and outfielder Matt Carson.
None of the moves were unexpected, as they were all non-roster invitees.
After returning Rule 5 pick Terry Doyle to the White Sox yesterday, the Twins now have 39 players in camp. The list includes 18 pitchers (three non-roster), five catchers (two non-roster), 10 infielders (four non-roster), and six outfielders (one non-roster).

MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins announced today that they outrighted infielder/outfielder Brian Dinkelman and left-handed pitcher Phil Dumatrait to Triple-A Rochester.
As a result of the roster moves, the Twins have 36 players on their 40-man roster. They also outrighted catcher Rene Rivera, infielder Matt Tolbert, outfielder Jason Repko, and right-hander Anthony Slama to Triple-A Rochester last week while reinstating right-hander Nick Blackburn (forearm surgery) and second baseman Alexi Casilla (right hamstring strain) from the 60-day disabled list.
Dinkelman, 27, played in 23 games with the Twins, batting .301 with a .346 on-base percentage and .315 slugging percentage. Dinkelman, who saw time at second base and both corner outfield positions, also had four RBIs and two stolen bases.
He was originally called up on June 3, but was outrighted to Triple-A on June 17 to make room for catcher Joe Mauer, who was activated from the 60-day DL. Dinkelman was called up for a second time on Sept. 5 after hitting .243/.316/.324 with three homers, 41 RBIs and seven stolen bases in 127 games with Rochester.
Dumatrait, 30, spent most of the season with the Twins, posting a 3.92 ERA in 45 appearances. The left-hander struck out 29 and walked 25 while allowing seven homers in 41 1/3 innings. He also made 15 appearances with Rochester, posting a 1.15 ERA with 12 strikeouts and 11 walks in 15 2/3 innings before being recalled on May 16.
