Three of the Mariners’ top prospects were among six players reassigned Sunday to minor-league camp.

Outfielder Tyler O’Neill was reassigned after the Mariners’ 3-2 loss to Texas in Surprise. He entered the spring at No. 2 in the TNT Top 10 preseason ranking of the organization’s top prospects.

Right-handed pitchers Andrew Moore and Max Povse were among five players reassigned prior to the game. They are ranked eighth and ninth in the TNT Top 10 and are expected to open the season at Double-A Arkansas.

In addition to Moore and Povse, the Mariners reassigned catcher Steve Baron and right-handed pitchers Christian Bergman and Ryan Weber prior to the game.

The six moves leave 45 players on the big-league camp roster, including 10 non-roster players. More cuts are expected later this week after the Mariners regain several players who had been taking part in the World Baseball Classic.
