WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Gorkys Hernandez will be remaining in the organization after all. So will Zack Cox and Scott Maine.

After clearing waivers on Wednesday, Hernandez and Maine were outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans, with Cox outrighted to Double-A Jacksonville.

But Miami did lose the services of right-handed reliever Evan Reed, who was claimed by the Tigers.

The Marlins designated all four for assignment on Sunday to free up space on the 40-man roster.

Hernandez, a terrific defensive outfielder, will play center field at New Orleans. The native of Venezuela was acquired last July for Gaby Sanchez.

Maine is a left-handed reliever, and Cox will mix in at third base in Jacksonville.
