The Red Sox made a few roster moves Tuesday as spring training rolls on.

Left-handed pitchers Brian Johnson and Henry Owens and right-handed pitcher Brandon Workman were optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket, and third baseman Rafael Devers, outfielder Junior Lake, and catcher Jordan Procyshen were reassigned to minor league camp.

The Red Sox now have 52 players in big league camp, including 37 players from the 40-man roster and 15 non-roster invitees.

All the moves were pretty much expected. In Owens’ case, he still continues to work on his control, which has been the case virtually his entire career with the Red Sox. He was the only player to have any chance of making the big league team, but even that was a long-shot.

Devers is expected to start the year in Double-A.
