Eierman no longer on Rays' spring list

Outfielder Johnny Eierman, a third-round draft pick in 2011, is one of four players whose name no longer appears on Tampa Bay's minor league spring roster.

Eierman, who hit .228 in 34 games last year at Rookie-level Princeton, was the 119th overall pick in 2011.

Pitchers Cory Jordan and Trevor Shull and outfielder Erick Vasquez are also not listed on the latest spring roster, which is dated Tuesday.

Jordan was a 35th-round pick last year and had a 4.00 ERA in 18 appearances at short-season Hudson Valley. Shull, a 19th-rounder in 2008, was with Bowling Green in 2012 before throwing just eight innings in the GCL last year.

Vasquez, an international signee from Venezuela, hit .179 for the GCL Rays last year.
