Reggie's Back

The Marlins organization changed their mind and Abercrombie is back with the team, as Jim B sort of noted.

Outfielder Reggie Abercrombie was back with the Marlins after the team changed its mind before officially optioning him to Triple-A. Reliever Lee Gardner was demoted instead.

Abercrombie flew from Kansas City to Albuquerque before receiving a call Sunday night from Assistant General Manager Michael Hill telling him to meet the team in Chicago. Abercrombie caught an 8 a.m. flight and reached U.S. Cellular Field around 2:30 p.m. Monday.

He did get to log some frequent flyer miles and if this happens a few more times, Reggie will be wintering on the French Riviera for free.  Or at least his trip will be free.
