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.
