Eugenio Velez 2B TB 3 Days
Velez was reassigned to minor league camp Thursday, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

While Velez went 5-for-15 with one strikeout with the big club this spring, he's hit just .241/.287/.367 in parts of five seasons at the major league level, the last of which was in 2011.
