'Lins news - goodbye Reggie

Marlins announce handful of roster moves

The Marlins announced a handful of 40-man roster moves Thursday.

Outfielder Reggie Abercrombie and right-hander Jose Garcia were claimed via waivers by the Astros and Athletics, respectively.

Catcher Paul Hoover, outfielder Todd Linden and infielder Jason Wood were outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The athletic Abercrombie, 26, made some strides at Albuquerque last season, but he never fulfilled his potential during his three seasons in the organization.

Garcia entered spring training with a great shot to make the club, but he was sidelined with elbow inflammation and ultimately underwent Tommy John surgery. He won't be ready to pitch again until mid-2008.

At 37, Wood spent his first full season in the majors serving as the club's primary backup corner infielder and one of the club's primary pinch-hitters. Wood has agreed to a minor-league deal and will be in Jupiter next spring with a good chance to make the club again.

Like Wood, Linden and Hoover would return on minor league deals and likely receive invites to spring training.

The Marlins' 40-man roster is at 36.

MARLINS MOVE TO 790

As expected, the Marlins completed their radio relocation, announcing a multi-year contract with 790 (WAXY) The Ticket, which replaces WQAM 560-AM as the club's flagship station.

Starting next season, 790 will broadcast all Marlins games in addition to 15 spring training contests.

It was Boog's option to leave the Marlins, they wanted him to do TV before they hired Len Kasper (who left and was replaced by Rich Waltz) and he turned them down to do ESPN and the talk show on the Ticket. Him coming back to be DVH's assistant is not going to happen.

So are they going to bring over sleepy hollow from 560 or go with a new team?
