Phillies Hoping That Brignac Can Help Off The Bench

Reid Brignac – Photo Credit – Keith Allison In a totally non surprising move, and one that Philadelphia Phillies fans have probably been calling for all year, infielder Freddy Galvis has been sent down to Triple-A.

Phillies Sign Bench Bat Brignac

The Phillies signed some bench competition, inking veteran utilityman Reid Brignac to a minor-league deal that includes an invite to Clearwater this spring.
