Galvis Called Up, Brignac DFA’d

Who, or What, is Reid Brignac?

Can Brignac be more than a nice bench piece in Philadelphia? Who, or what, is Reid Brignac was a question I had posed to me Wednesday night after Brignac’s ninth inning, walk-off homer to send the last-place Padres, well, further into last place in the NL West.

Reid Brignac Walks It Off Once Again

After weeks of what felt like nothing but agony and torture, last night's victory in the first game against the San Diego Padres was a huge relief, at least for one night. To start, A.J. Burnett looked impressive. Coming off of some pretty disturbing performances, the veteran was crafty and...

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.
