Abercrombie was sent to minor-league camp Wednesday as the Marlins narrowed their starting center-field candidates to Alex Sanchez and Eric Reed.
Reggie has all the "tools" to be a good major leaguer but like last season he wasn't getting it done at the plate.
This is Abercrombie's last option year and it makes perfect sense to send him down to see if he can fix that hole in his swing. He sure isn't going to do it sitting on the bench in the majors.
The organization is well aware of his potential but unfortunately, for whatever reason, he as yet to reach it.
Reggie wasn't the only causality, yesterday.
We will, more than likely, see Gaby Hernandez up with the Marlins later in the season. He has some things he needs to work out. Hernandez is coming along nicely but he needs some more seasoning before being ready for the show. Should the injuries to the starting staff escalate, Hernandez may be up earlier than he is ready.
Hopefully that won't happen.
