Braves purchased the contract of INF Reid Brignac from Triple-A Gwinnett.

This will be Brignac's sixth major league team. He's a .219/.266/.310 hitter in 922 plate appearances.
May 2 - 3:59 PM

Braves re-assigned INF Reid Brignac to minor league camp.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise, as the 30-year-old infielder has had a nice spring by slashing .294/.381/.471 with a homer and eight RBI. It appears that Gordon Beckham will stay on in the reserve infielder role while Brignac functions as additional depth at Triple-A for the time being.
Mar 26 - 9:11 AM

Reid Brignac (leg) was scratched from Thursday's game against the Astros.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he's dealing with a strained leg. Gordon Beckham will grab the start at third base. Brignac has had a solid spring so far with seven hits in 19 at-bats. That includes a homer and six RBI.
Mar 17 - 9:57 AM

Braves signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Brignac, who turns 30 in January, appeared in 17 games with the Marlins this past season and owns a lowly .219/.266/.310 batting line in the majors. He's simply organizational fodder at this point.

Marlins sent INF Reid Brignac outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Brignac was designated for assignment by the Fish on May 8 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 29-year-old is a .219/.266/.310 career hitter in the major leagues.

Marlins designated INF Reid Brignac for assignment.

Brignac was the odd-man out with Christian Yelich returning from the disabled list on Friday. There's a chance that he could pass through waivers and continue to function as organizational depth for the Marlins.

Marlins re-signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract.

Brignac was cut at the end of March and elected free agency, but it appears he's had a change of heart. He'll report to the Triple-A New Orleans. Should the Marlins need some infield bench help, Brignac would get the call, as he was one of the last cuts in camp. Last season with the Phillies, the veteran hit .222/.300/.346 in 81 at-bats for the Phillies.

Reid Brignac has elected free agency.

Brignac, a non-roster invitee this spring, was among the Marlins' final cuts. He hit .222/.300/.346 in 81 at-bats with the Phillies last season. At best, he'll find work as a backup utility infielder, but he's not fantasy relevant.
Tue, Mar 31, 2015 12:03:00 PM

Reid Brignac went 3-for-4 with three RBI against the Mets on Monday.

Brignac, a .222/.300/.346 hitter in 81 at-bats for the Phillies last season, is a fallback utility infield option for the Marlins if players get hurt this spring.
Mon, Mar 9, 2015 05:28:00 PM

Marlins signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract.

It's unclear whether the deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 28-year-old batted .222/.300/.346 in a utility role with the Phillies this past season.
Wed, Nov 19, 2014 09:07:00 PM

Phillies sent INF Reid Brignac outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Sat, Aug 23, 2014 02:56:00 PM

Phillies activated INF Reid Brignac from the 15-day disabled list.

Mon, Jul 21, 2014 02:34:00 PM
