Mayberry optioned to minors

John Mayberry Jr. has been optioned to the minor leagues, thus ending the speculation that he might take Geoff Jenkins' job. Carlos Carrasco was also sent down along with Mayberry.

Also, reliever Mike Koplove and infielder Pablo Ozuna were informed they will not make the team.

What does this mean in terms of the Phils roster? By my counts, it seems as if there will be 3 spots available for 4 candidates: J.A. Happ, Chan Ho Park, Miguel Cairo, and Gary Majewski. My guess is Majewski will be sent down and the Phils will have Cairo on the bench, but we will know for sure in a few days.
