Reid Brignac, who had been designated for assignment a while back, is headed to the Colorado Rockies spring training camp in Arizona.
He’s already been the subject of a couple of Rays blog posts on his career as a Ray, for example, this piece by John Sickels over at Rays Colored Glasses.
But we are interested in his career as a Durham Bull, and that’s pretty good. He spent parts of four seasons in Durham, appearing in 303 games with 1287 plate appearances. That puts him at #7 on the all-time list. It’s a bit of a surprise to also find him on the all-time OPS list at #15. He is a ballplayer with unquestionably good hands, maybe the high and dry of Arizona and Colorado will suit his bat.
