Reggie Abercrombie Vaults Into Lead

Reggie Abercrombie's strong spring and ability to play three outfield positions has vaulted him into a prime position to win a starting outfield spot for the Florida Marlins. The Marlins signed him last year after he was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Abercrombie immediately impressed beginning with his production at Jupiter, Fla., hitting 24 homers in two minor league stops, and has rapidly advanced through the system. Abercrombie has speed and a powerful and accurate arm.
