Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Reggie Abercrombie was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers as a draft-and-follow pick in the 23rd round of the 1999 amateur draft. After a year of junior college, he was signed by scout Lon Joyce and made his pro debut in the Pioneer League in 2000, stealing 32 bases in 54 games. He joined the Wilmington Waves the next year and stole 44 bases and hit 10 homers. He advanced to AA in 2003.

Abercrombie was slowed by injuries in 2004, and midway through the season, he was traded with Koyie Hill to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Steve Finley and Brent Mayne. In the 2003-2004 seasons, Abercrombie drew a combined 28 walks versus 287 strikeouts in 220 games. Before the 2005 season, he was claimed off waivers by the Florida Marlins. He split the year between A and AA, hitting 25 home runs between the two levels. Abercrombie made his big league debut with the Marlins in 2006.
