Brignac breaks wrist; Merrill, Walton moved up

Reid Brignac was hit by a pitch and removed from the game back on August 6th, and eventually diagnosed with a broken wrist, possibly ending his season. The result? Montgomery SS Ronnie Merrill was promoted to Durham, and Vero Beach infielder Neil Walton was tapped to take Merrill's spot with the Biscuits.

Merill was hitting .263/.361/.374 for Montgomery, while Walton posted a line of .224/.285/.305 with the Vero Beach Devil Rays. Neither is really a prospect at this point, but with the Bulls almost assured a playoff spot(they lead Norfolk by 9.5 games) and the Biscuits fighting for one(they trail Mississippi by 1.5 games), one or both could help bring the Rays organization another minor league championship.
