Phillies Designate Reid Brignac For Assignment

The Phillies have announced that they’ve designated Reid Brignac for assignment and recalled fellow infielder Freddy Galvis from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, essentially replacing an older, lefty-hitting utilityman with a younger, switch-hitting one. Brignac, 28, was hitting .222/.300/.346 in 91 plate appearances with the Phillies. He hit better for Lehigh Valley, batting .299/.375/.521 in 138 plate appearances there.

Brignac signed a minor league deal with the Phillies last winter. He has previously played for the Rays (for whom he was once a top prospect), Rockies and Yankees, posting a .222/.266/.314 line in parts of seven big-league seasons.

Brignac is 28 hardly a senior. Neither can apparently hit in the majors. Galvis might have a slight edge in the fielding dept. He’s just a naturally gifted at that. Reid was a pretty decent fielder himself.

28 is hardly a senior citizen. Now we get to watch as Freddy attempts to hit his weight.

Youth =/= talent.
