The Minnesota Twins on Saturday cut six players from their roster, including two-time All Star outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Quentin hit .250 with two homers and seven RBI in 15 Grapefruit League games. The 33-year-old hasn’t played in the Major Leagues since 2014, after batting .252 with 154 home runs in nine seasons with the Diamondbacks, White Sox and Padres.

Quentin was reassigned to minor-league camp, along with catcher Juan Centeno, infielder James Beresford, outfielder Darin Mastroianni and lefty reliever Dan Runzler. Catcher John Hicks was optioned to Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins have 29 players remaining in camp and will need to make four cuts before heading to Washington D.C. for two exhibition games next weekend. They open the season April 4 in Baltimore.
