The Washington Nationals and free agent infielder Reid Brignac have agreed on a minor league deal for the upcoming 2018 season, with an invitation to spring training included, FanRag Sports confirms. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report the two sides were in agreement. Brignac did not appear in the major leagues last season, spending his age-31 year at Triple-A Fresno, the affiliate of the Houston Astros. In 110 games, Brignac batted .251 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs, his most in a single stop of professional ball since he was in Double-A back in 2007. The Tampa Bay Rays originally drafted Brignac in the second round of the 2004 MLB Amateur Draft out of St. Amant, La. He ascended the prospect rankings, getting as high as the No. 11 overall prospect in the game prior to the 2007 year.
