Brignac Signed to Minor League Deal
The Phillies today announced they have signed infielder Reid Brignac to a Minor League contract with an invitation to big-league Spring Training.
Brignac, 27, hit a combined .185 with a .480 on-base-plus-slugging percentage in 98 plate appearances last season with the Rockies and Yankees. He has hit .221 with a .573 OPS in a six-year career with the Rays, Rockies and Yankees.
He has played shortstop, second base and third base in his career, as well as the corner outfield positions.
Brignac could compete for a utility infield job, although Kevin Frandsen and Freddy Galvis are expected to be the favorites for those two spots.
