Reid Brignac Hits Rock Bottom, Signs with the Phillies
Holy poop on a popsicle, Amaro has landed a former top prospect in the form of Reid Brignac. The 27 year old might have unsightly stats spanning 6 MLB seasons with the Rays, Rockies, and Yankees, but he sure is versatile. He can play 2nd, SS, 3rd, and some outfield. For his career he's a .221/.573 hitter in 302 games.
Reid was a 2nd round pick by Tampa Bay back in 2004 and was ranked as one the game's Top 100 prospects 4 years straight (2007- #17, 2008- #39, 2009- #78, and 2010- #54). However, his minor league stats surely don't suggest greatest (.272/.764 spanning parts of 9 seasons).
Who knows, perhaps Brignac is a late bloomer and will be the steal of the offseason. More likely that struggles to produce for the Iron Pigs and is released mid-season.
