JUPITER, Fla. -- Chone Figgins is battling to extend his career.

The 12th-year veteran is a .277 career hitter with 337 stolen bases, but he has batted under .200 each of the past two seasons, and the Miami Marlins might represent his last opportunity to stay in the big leagues.

He's off to a slow start with them in spring training, going 0 for 9 in his first four games. But he's confident he can still hit, and figures his versatility afield coming off the bench makes him especially valuable to a National League team.

Until this year, he spent his entire career in the AL.

Figgins has played 630 games at third base, 274 at second, 253 in centre field, 76 in left field, 28 in right field and 27 at shortstop.
