Brewers make six roster cuts

The Brewers moved six players off the big league camp roster, including one potential fifth starter candidate, in the first round of cuts Sunday. 
That fifth starter candidate is right-hander Amaury Rivas, who was optioned to Triple-A Nashville. He was one of the players mentioned as a potential fill-in for Zack Greinke, who will miss the start of the season with a cracked rib. 
The Brewers also optioned pitchers Dan Merklinger and Cody Scarpetta to Double-A Huntsville and returned pitchers Robert Hinton and Roque Mercedes and catcher Anderson De La Rosa to Minor League camp. 
The first Minor League full-squad workout was Sunday, but all six players were given until Tuesday to report. 
With the moves, 47 players remained in big league camp.
