What is Brignac's worth?

There is a reason he has the nickname the Cajun God of Baseball. He filled in well when Bartlett went down earlier in the year. His defense is one of the best in AAA. But he used to be known for his massive offensive potential. Back with the Rays affiliate Southwest Michigan he led the team with 15 HRs and 29 doubles. In 2006, at 20 years old, he combined to hit .321 with 24 home runs and 99 RBIs at Class A Advanced Visalia and Double-A Montgomery. But as he advanced to AAA, the offense didn't seem to come with him. But now, over his last 10 games, over half of his hits have been for extra bases, including 4 home runs. The question was tossed around earlier this season about Brignac's worth. Someone mentioned a possible Brignac for Jeff Clement trade a month or so ago. At this point, you'd have to think his value has risen. He has more XB hits than Matt Laporta, the main piece in last year's CC trade. Better numbers than Alcides Escobar, except for steals. There doesn't seem like there's another comparable SS in upper minors. If he continues this tear, his value should be sky high this offseason.
