Brignac was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Thursday after he batted .250/.294/.375 with one home run, six RBI and a .669 OPS in 53 plate appearances this season. Originally drafted by the Rays in the second-round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, the 27-year-old is a .228/.270/.321 hitter over 769 plate appearances in the majors.
With Brignac’s experience between shortstop, second base and the hot corner, he could be a useful option while the Yankees attempt to make due without the likes of Eduardo Nunez, Kevin Youkilis, Derek Jeter, and Alex Rodriguez.
