 MIAMI (AP) -The Florida Marlins optioned rookie outfielder Eric Reed to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday less than 24 hours after he had a pinch-hit single and scored the winning run against Los Angeles.
The Marlins had decided Tuesday to make the switch, but after Reed's ninth-inning heroics against the Dodgers, manager Fredi Gonzalez waited to tell him.
``It's hard,'' Gonzalez said. ``He took it OK. He understood. He didn't do anything wrong. It just works better for the club.''
The Marlins recalled from Albuquerque outfielder Reggie Abercrombie, who hit .212 in 111 games as a rookie last year. The Marlins were in the market for a center fielder to start against left-handers. Reed is a left-handed hitter who was batting only .143, while Abercrombie hits right-handed.
Abercrombie batted .282 at Albuquerque with four homers and 15 stolen bases. He endured a dismal rookie season and was demoted to the minors early in spring training this year.
``My confidence now is pretty good,'' he said. ``I'm happy to be here and help this team win and try to stay in the big leagues for a long period of time.''
