News: Kobernus was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
Impact: Kobernus came into camp competing for a spot on the big league roster, and while he could still earn a promotion at some point early in the year, he'll start back in Triple-A. In 59 games with Syracuse last season, the 26-year-old slashed .257/.338/.359 with 15 steals in 18 attempts.
