Brugman signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Burgman played a combined four games in Triple-A for Baltimore and Arizona affiliates before signing a minor-league contract with the Mariners in June last season. In 293 at-bats for Triple-A Tacoma, the veteran slashed .283/.363/.601 with 23 home runs and 65 RBI.
Brugman signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Saturday.
Brugman didn't have to wait long to find a new organization after the Orioles released him a week earlier. The outfielder only appeared in three games for Baltimore's Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk before parting ways with the team.
Brugman was released by the Orioles on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Brugman has some big-league experience, appearing in 48 games for the Athletics back in 2017. He was limited to just three games for Triple-A Norfolk this season.
Brugman cleared waivers Sunday and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Brugman was designated for assignment last week following the team's re-signing of Chris Tillman. No other teams showed any interest in the outfielder, so he'll kick off the 2018 campaign in Triple-A. He will report back to major-league spring training in the meantime, though.
The Orioles designated Brugman for assignment Wednesday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Brugman lost his spot on the 40-man roster after the Orioles made their re-signing of starting pitcher Chris Tillman official Wednesday. After announcing the Tillman transaction, Baltimore general manager Dan Duquette revealed that the team considers adding a left-handed outfield bat its top priority, according to Encina, but the lefty-hitting Brugman apparently wasn't viewed as a solution on that front. Though he showed respectable contact and on-base skills in his first taste of the majors with the Athletics last season, slashing .266/.346/.343 in 162 plate appearances, Brugman's dearth of power and lack of high-end speed will limit his fantasy appeal if he resurfaces in the big leagues with the Orioles or another team down the line.
Brugman was dealt to the Orioles on Wednesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Brugman was recently designated for assignment by Oakland on Monday, and will now head to the East Coast after playing in 48 games with the A's last season. During that time, he slashed .266/.346/.343 with three home runs and 12 RBI. He will serve as outfield depth for Baltimore moving forward, and could latch onto the big-league roster as a fourth or fifth outfielder in 2018.
Brugman was designated for assignment Monday.
In a corresponding move, the A's added Heath Fillmyer to the 40-man roster. Brugman appeared in the majors for the first time in his career last season. Over 48 games, he hit .266/.346/.343 and played each outfield position.
Brugman was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Brugman will head back down to Nashville after earning his first major-league promotion in early June, while Boog Powell gets the opportunity to show off his skills with the A's. Throughout the course of 48 games, Brugman slashed .266/.346/.343 with three home runs and 12 RBI. Although he's shown the ability to hold his own in the batter's box, the 25-year-old has only collected three hits in 17 at-bats this month, and will look to work things out at the Triple-A level before rejoining the A's in a couple weeks.

Manager Bob Melvin is sending out a righty-dominant lineup against southpaw Ty Blach, so Brugman will get his second straight day off. Rajai Davis is starting for him in center field, batting leadoff.

Brugman is not in Friday's lineup against Minnesota, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Brugman will take a seat with left-hander Jaime Garcia taking the hill for the Twins. Manager Bob Melvin likely wants to give Brugman a day of rest following his return to the field Thursday, after a three-game absence due to neck stiffness. In his place, Rajai Davis draws the start in center while batting leadoff.
Brugman (neck) went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Oakland's loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday.
The rookie center fielder sat out the last three games with neck stiffness, but the two-hit effort seems to indicate that there is no problem on that front anymore. Brugman is now slashing .255/.341/.318 on the season and he will likely continue to be the Athletics' primary center fielder for the remainder of the season.
Brugman (neck) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Toronto.
Manager Bob Melvin stated that Brugman might've been available off the bench during Tuesday's game, and although he didn't come into the game, it would appear to be a similar situation heading into Wednesday's contest. Brugman should be considered day-to-day moving forward, while Rajai Davis continues to fill in at center field.
Manager Bob Melvin said that Brugman (neck) might be available off the bench for Tuesday's contest with the Blue Jays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The rookie outfielder was seen participating in drills on the field prior to the game's start, so it's certainly not out of the question. Brugman apparently woke up with some neck soreness, so even if he's unable to appear Tuesday night, a Wednesday return to action seems possible.
Brugman is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Brugman is dealing with some neck soreness, and although it's unclear when the issue cropped up, it's likely the reason why he sat out Monday as well. The rookie outfielder is 10-for-29 over the past 14 games, so it comes at a very poor time for him. Nonetheless, Rajai Davis will take his place in center field for the evening and will likely do so until Brugman's back to full health.
Brugman is out of the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.
In an effort to get more right-handed bats in the lineup for the matchup with Blue Jays southpaw Francisco Liriano, Athletics manager Bob Melvin will move Brugman and catcher Bruce Maxwell to the bench, opening up starts for right-handed hitters Rajai Davis and Josh Phegley, respectively. The Athletics have made a habit of limiting Brugman's exposure to lefty pitching since his promotion to the big leagues, with the rookie logging just 15 plate appearances against them, compared to 111 versus right-handers.
