Latest Round of Cuts

VIERA, Fla. -- Left-hander Matt White, whose quest to make the Dodgers' pitching staff as a non-roster invitee was overshadowed by revelations of his billion-dollar rock find, was one of seven players demoted Monday morning.

In addition to White, the Dodgers assigned to Minor League camp John Meloan, outfielder Choo Freeman and infielder Tony Abreu, who injured his shoulder Saturday and is out for two to four weeks. Pitchers D.J. Houlton and Eric Stults and outfielder Delwyn Young were optioned.
