Defensive Wizard Added To Minors

Adam Rubin at Surfing the Mets writes about the Mets signing former Marlins outfielder Eric Reed to a minor league contract:

The organization signed standout defensive outfielder Eric Reed and assigned him to the B-Mets. Reed began the season with the Marlins’ Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque, where he went 2-for-17 with an RBI in four games. He was Marlins’ Opening Day center fielder in 2006 and recorded his first major-league hit that season at Shea off Jorge Julio, though Reed owns just a .098 average in 61 major-league at-bats.
