Reid Brignac is Back, Ruggiano to DL

After playing 11 games for the Durham Bulls, Reid Brignac is back in the bigs, replacing seldom-used backup OF Justin Ruggiano, who is heading to the DL with left knee bursitis apparently sustained from repeated use of a wooden bench.

Brignac hit .231 with one homer while leading off for Durham.

Sean Rodriguez, who was given a shot to play shortstop full-time in Brignac's absence, has failed to grasp a hold of the position, hitting just .200/.282/.286 since taking over in July.

Completing the Shortstop Shuffle for the Rays organization, SS prospect and former number one overall draft pick Tim Beckham has been promoted to AAA Durham, and SS Hak-Ju Lee has been promoted from Charlotte to Montgomery to replace Beckham.

Beckham has hit .278/.341/.399 at Montgomery and will make his AAA debut at just 21-years old. Lee, 20, was acquired from the Chicago Cubs this off-season as part of the Matt Garza trade. He has been tearing up the Florida Gulf Coast League to the tune of .316/.389/.443
