Former Nevada catcher Kondrad Schmidt was among the first round of cuts made by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday.
Schmidt will now be re-assigned to the team's Minor League camp.
The catcher was 2-for-4 with a double in five games this season.
He joined the Reno Aces late last year and hit .438 with four runs batted in during a five game stint.
The Diamondbacks also cut former Aces starting pitcher Cesar Valdez .
Valdez started 18 games for the Aces. He went 7-6 with a 4.78 earned run average in 96 innings last season.
