Brignac signed a minor league contract with the Phillies on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
A second-round pick by the Rays in 2004, Brignac has hit .221/.262/.311 with 11 home runs in 302 career major-league games. He split 2013 between New York and Colorado, once again doing little with his opportunities (.185 average). Brignac will get to show what he has next spring, but he figures to see minimal playing time in a utility role, if he happens to break camp with Philadelphia.
