Diamondbacks sign Russell Branyan
Posted By Josh Robbins On Feb 17 2011 @ 12:12 am In Arizona Diamondbacks | No Comments
The Diamondbacks signed 13-year veteran, Russell Branyan, to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training. The 35-year-old first baseman will compete for a position on the active 25 player roster. Branyan offers tremendous power to an Arizona lineup that lost 3B Mark Reynolds and 1B Adam LaRoche in off-season transactions. However, the first baseman strikes out at an alarming rate less than every three at-bats for his career. Branyan has compiled a lifetime .234 AVG, 189 home runs, and 453 RBIs for eight different MLB clubs.
