Rockies sign INF Reid Brignac to minor league deal
DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies are bringing Reid Brignac back to the organization, signing the infielder to a minor league deal.
Brignac will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the team said on Thursday.
Colorado picked up Brignac from the Tampa Bay Rays in February, only to designate him for assignment last month after he hit .250 in limited action.
A few days later, the New York Yankees acquired Brignac from the Rockies for cash. He was cut by New York last week to make room for infielder Alberto Gonzalez.
While with the Yankees, Brignac hit .114 in 44 plate appearances.
