The Athletics cut five pitchers on Sunday.
RHP Arnold Leon was optioned to Triple-A. He allowed two hits in four shutout innings this spring, and manager Bob Melvin said the decision to send him down was a tough one.
RHP Raul Alcantara, who hasn't played as he continues to recover from arm surgery, was optioned to Double-A.
Three pitchers were reassigned to minor league camp: RHP Angel Castro (3.00 ERA in three spring innings) and LHPs Jim Fuller (3.38 ERA) and Rudy Owens (9.00 ERA).
