Coghlan optioned to Triple-A

ST. PETERSBURG — In a surprise move, the Marlins optioned center fielder Chris Coghlan to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday and selected the contract of Dewayne Wise.

Coghlan, the 2009 NL Rookie of the Year, has struggled with a .230 batting average and .296 on-base percentage.

Wise, who was in Spring Training with the Marlins, was 3-for-9 for New Orleans.

To make roster room for Wise, lefty reliever Dustin Richardson was designated for assigment. Richardson was obtained in trade with Boston for Andrew Miller in the offseason.
