Player Outlook
Vidal Brujan spent several years highly ranked in the Rays' farm system, but his minor league hitting success still has not translated to any success at the big league level. He has a career .157/.218/.221 triple-slash line over 99 games and the Rays moved on sending Brujan and Calvin Fauchier to the Marlins for pieces off the 40-man roster this winter. Brujan is out of minor league options, so the Marlins would have to expose the 26 year old utility player to waivers should he not show any growth this offseason. Brujan is capable of playing multiple positions in the field and has plenty of speed, but does not always use it wisely with a poor stolen base success rate and some TOOTBLANs throughout the past couple of seasons. Brujan is essentially Mark Belanger without the defense. Draft him accordingly.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Moving into reserve role

    Brujan is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. After a stretch of 16 consecutive starts, Brujan is on the bench for the second day in a row and appears set to operate as a utility man moving forward. His most recent nine starts came at shortstop, but Tim Anderson returned from the injured list Tuesday and has reclaimed everyday duties at the position. Meanwhile, Brujan looks to have lost out on playing time at second base to Otto Lopez, who has produced an .886 OPS thus far in May while chipping in two home runs and two stolen bases.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Taking seat Tuesday

    Brujan is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Brewers. Brujan had made 16 straight starts, with the last nine of them coming at shortstop while Tim Anderson (back) was out. Anderson has returned to the Marlins' lineup at shortstop Tuesday, and the club is sticking with Otto Lopez at second base while Brujan gets a breather.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Clubs first homer in loss

    Brujan went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Phillies. Brujan got the scoring started in this one with a leadoff blast off Taijuan Walker in the bottom of the fifth inning. It was his first home run as a Marlin and just his fourth in 130 major-league games. Brujan also singled and was caught stealing, and he added an additional run after reaching on a fielder's choice. The 26-year-old has become an everyday player for the Marlins over the last two weeks, starting 13 of the last 15 contests. His production has slowed in May, but Brujan has shown enough since getting regular reps to make him a viable deep-league option.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Back on bench Thursday

    Brujan is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Brujan had started in five of the previous six games, with the first three coming at third base and the last two coming at shortstop. He had been filling in for Tim Anderson (thumb) the past two days, but Anderson is on track to return to his usual spot at shortstop for the series finale with the Rockies. Brujan looks set to vie with Emmanuel Rivera for playing time at the hot corner moving forward, though both could be headed for reserve roles soon with Jake Burger (oblique) having already initiated a rehab assignment and poised to return from the 10-day injured list in the near future.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Moves to bench Wednesday

    Brujan is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. With Tim Anderson (thumb) returning to action following a one-game absence, Brujan will head to the bench after filling in as Miami's starting shortstop in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning win. Before Tuesday, Brujan had started three of the Marlins' previous four games at third base, and he'll continue to vie with Emmanuel Rivera for playing time at that position until Jake Burger (oblique) returns from the 10-day injured list.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Starting in first game of twin bill

    Brujan is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in the first game of the Marlins' doubleheader against the Cubs on Saturday. The switch-hitting Brujan will face off against Cubs right-hander Javier Assad in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. Tim Anderson figures to start at shortstop in the second game against Chicago left-hander Shota Imanaga. Brujan has gone just 2-for-20 with one double, one RBI and one run to start the season.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Available off bench

    Brujan (knee) is available off the bench for Monday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Struggling to start season

    Brujan went 0-for-3 in Monday's 7-0 loss to the Yankees. The 26-year-old has yet to pick up a hit through 12 at-bats this season, but his versatility should continue to get him spots in the lineup. Brujan is capable of playing all infield positions, and his plus speed allows him to get looks out in the outfield, as well.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Makes 26-man roster

    Brujan will begin the season on the Marlins' Opening Day roster. This isn't a surprise, as Brujan is out of minor-league options, and the 26-year-old could become Miami's new speedy super-utility player with Jon Berti now a Yankee. Brujan hit just .219 (7-for-32) in Grapefruit League play and was successful on only one of three steal attempts, a performance which aligns with his career .157/.218/.221 over 272 career big-league plate appearances for the Rays.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: On track for roster spot

    Manager Skip Schumacher indicated Friday that Brujan has "a high likelihood" of winning a spot on the Marlins' initial 26-man roster, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. "He's got a really good chance to make the team," Schumaker said. "He's versatile. He's done enough in Triple-A. He can run. He switch hits. He can do a lot of things for us. I haven't told him that he's made the team or anything like that, but I would anticipate him being part of our club." Brujan was picked up from the Rays in an offseason trade and is out of minor-league options, so him making the Opening Day roster wouldn't be a huge surprise, but it remains to be seen what kind of role the 26-year-old can carve out on a Miami roster that already has Jon Berti entrenched in a utility role and also added Nick Gordon in February.

  • Rays' Vidal Brujan: Sent back to Durham

    Brujan was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Manuel Margot (elbow) is coming off the 10-day injured list in a corresponding roster move. Brujan, 25, has put up intriguing offensive numbers throughout the minors, but he holds a career .157/.218/.221 batting line in 272 plate appearances at the big-league level.

He'll provide manager Kevin Cash with some defensive versatility.

During his two-week stint with the Rays, Brujan appeared in five games and logged just three at-bats.

  • Rays' Vidal Brujan: Recalled from Triple-A

    Brujan was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

  • Rays' Vidal Brujan: Sent down Monday

    Brujan was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports. Brujan will head to Tacoma after being called up June 5, batting .176 average with two doubles, two RBI, four runs and two stolen bases over 34 at-bats in 12 games. He'll look to regroup in Triple-A and attempt to earn another promotion later this season.

  • Rays' Vidal Brujan: Logs pair of steals

    Brujan went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and two steals in Saturday's loss to Kansas City. Brujan was demoted to the minors in late April after going 5-for-20 (.250) with seven strikeouts and zero extra-base hits but returned to the big leagues on June 5. Saturday's performance was his best since the call-up, posting his first multi-hit effort of the stint while collecting his first two stolen bases of the campaign. Though Brujan is slashing a lowly .227/.261/.250, he'll continue to see semi-regular action as long as Brandon Lowe (back) is on the shelf.

  • Rays' Vidal Brujan: Called up Monday

    The Rays recalled Brujan from Triple-A Durham prior to Monday's game against the Red Sox, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports. Brujan will return to the Rays after he was sent down May 25, replacing Brandon Lowe (back), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Over 21 plate appearances with the big club this season, Brujan has produced a .250 average with three RBI and five runs. He'll likely serve as a utility man while he's up with Tampa Bay and may see sporadic playing time.
