Bye, Maniscalco; Welcome, Brignac

Shortstop Reid Brignac will make his Biscuits debut Friday and Matthew Maniscalco is moving up to Class AAA Durham.

Maniscalco learned of the promotion after Wednesday's loss at Birmingham. I'll assume Brignac learned of the move after Visalia's win over Lancaster.

Brignac is one of Tampa Bay's top prospects, while Maniscalco is one of the system's best people. It's obvious how good of a guy Maniscalco is when you see how many people made their way from his hometown to see him play and the way he treats each person. Sometimes, it made you think Oxford is a suburb of Montgomery.
