Reid Brignac and Alcides Escobar

Postby MaudDib » Wed May 27, 2009 4:33 pm

Does any one have much info on these guys? A few years ago, I remember Brignac being on a number of top 25 prospect lists but know he seems to have disappeared on these same lists. His numbers in the minors were ok. Nothing great but nothing bad either. He should be starting until Bartlett returns, does he have any chance of getting the nod even when Bartlett returns or is he mainly WW fodder? I could pick him up and put him in my minor leagues system...is he worth it?

Escobar also became available in my dynasty league. What are the thoughts on him. Will the Brewers give him a chance or will eventually become a role player? His minor league numbers are pretty nice except for his K total.

If you had a choice to pick up one of the two who would it be?

Thanks and as always WHIR...

Brignac gained a lot of pub when he dominated A ball in the hitter friendly Cal league. He has had his struggles in AA and AAA, but I think he still has talent. His future is at 2B for the Rays. I don't see the Rays re-signing Aki and they have said they want to move Reid and get him involved. When Bartlett and Burrell are back I see Reid going back down. Unless both Bartlett and Burell are out, I don't see him getting too much PT.
