    • Astros' Reid Brignac: Trying out switch-hititng
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brignac is experimenting with switch-hitting this spring in order to give himself a better shot of seeing more playing time, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. After slashing a woeful .207/.207/.276 in 29 plate appearances with the Braves and an unspectacular performance in 424 plate appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett, Brignac is changing things up in order to make himself more of a threat as a hitter. The 31-year-old journeyman will be hoping that, by becoming a switch-hitter, his manager will be less inclined to pinch hit for him later in games in order to get a favorable righty-lefty matchup. While it is a promising idea, Brignac will have to prove this spring that he can actually hack it from both sides of the plate.

    • Brignac signed a minor league contract with the Astros on Friday that includes an invite to spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Brignac has spent time in the majors in each of the past nine seasons, but he hasn't reached 100 plate appearances in any of the past five years and has totaled just 46 plate appearances over the past two campaigns. The soon-to-be 31-year-old is a .219/.264/.309 career hitter at the major league level, but he can play shortstop, second base and third and thus has some real-life value.

    • Braves' Reid Brignac: Assigned to minor league camp
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brignac has cleared waivers and will be assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports. After getting designated for assignment Friday, Brignac will elect to remain in the organization, rather than become a free agent. A backup infielder for one of the most offensively-challenged teams in baseball likely wasn't going to get much attention on the free agent market anyway.

    • Brignac was designated for assignment by the Braves on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Many of the Braves' infield options have been struggling at the plate this season, and Brignac was no different. In his limited at-bats, the 30-year-old could only muster a .207 batting average with three runs and a lone RBI. This performance led the Braves to send him off the 40-man roster, presumably in favor of younger players in the organization. A corresponding move has yet to be made, but Atlanta will likely need a new reserve infielder while Brignac heads to the minors to act as organizational depth.

    • Braves' Reid Brignac: Goes 2-for-2 in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brignac went singled and doubled in his two at-bats while scoring two runs and driving in another in Tuesday's 12-9 loss to the Pirates. Brignac came off the bench to replace Kelly Johnson and helped give hope to the Braves during a seventh-inning rally, but the team ultimately fell short to drop to 9-29 on the season. Johnson and Erick Aybar remain the Braves' primary starters in the middle infield, but Aybar in particular has been dreadful at the dish this season and could surrender more at-bats to Brignac in the near future.
