According to Jim Salisbury of, the Phillies have signed Reid Brignac to a minor-league contract, as well as an invite to spring training camp.

Brignac is a 27-year old utility infielder, and has played for the Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees, and most recently the Colorado Rockies. Brignac is a career .221 hitter, with 11 home runs, and 73 RBI’s.

Brignac is likely just a depth signing, and will inherit the role that Michael Martinez filled for much of the past two seasons.  Phillies fans should be overjoyed about the move because it may signify that Martinez truly will not be back with the team in 2014.
