Dumatrait, 30, had a 6.00 ERA in six innings this spring. Dumatrait, who posted a 3.92 ERA in 45 appearances with the Twins last year, struck out four, walked two and served up two homers.
Lehmann, 26, didn't have a hit in five at-bats over six appearances in Grapefruit League play.
Chang hit .273 with an .883 OPS in 11 games this spring. The 28-year-old saw time at second base, shortstop and third base.
Carson, 30, hit .077 with a .448 OPS in 11 games during Spring Training. The former A's outfielder played both left and right field.
