Per Schulman: In other news, the Giants made six cuts today, with no surprises. Pitchers Jesse English and Henry Sosa, and infielder Conor Gillaspie, were optioned. Catcher Eli Whiteside and infielders Matt Downs and Jake Wald were reassigned to the minor-league camp. Personally, I'm a little surprised to see English go down after 3 innings pitched. I guess despite his spot on the 40 man roster, the Giants never considered him for a spot out coming out of spring training. I still think we might see some English in the season after someone in the bullpen wears out their welcome (I'm looking at you, Special Agent).
