Astros send Pence to AAA

The Astros made a surprising move today, optioning outfielder Hunter Pence to the team's AAA affiliate, the Round Rock Express.  Outfielder Yordany Ramirez was called up to replace Pence on the Astros' roster.

"Hunter needs to learn some patience," Astros manager Cecil Cooper said. "I hated to see this happen, but he went 0 for 4 today and showed us that he needs some more seasoning."  Cooper said he is expects Pence to make his way back to the major league roster later this season.

Express manager Dave Clark said, "I am tickled to death to have Pence on my team again," referring to the fact that he managed the Corpus Christi Hooks when Pence played for the Astros' AA affiliate.

Astros' General Manager Ed Wade said that the media and fans shouldn't make too much of this move. "This is a common occurrence with second year players," he said.  "This is really just a procedural deal, and the fans shouldn't think any less of Hunter because of it."
