According to Reid Brignac, he is destined for Colorado and the waiting line for the infield. Brignac, who played shortstop for the Rays, has been picked up by the Rockies after being DFA’d by Tampa Bay. The Rockies are on the hook for cash consideration and a player to be named later.
No word on if it will come with an invite to Spring Training, or even if he will be picked up from the airport with all of the team cars having their seats full of players waiting to get on the field.
Brignac has the Herrera like ability to play 2nd, 3rd and SS as well as left. He has been in the bigs for five seasons, with a line of .227/.268/.317. He is 27 years old and not arbitration eligible.
