ST. PETERSBURG -- Former Rays infielder Reid Brignac, who was acquired by the Yankees from the Rockies last Saturday for cash considerations, admitted it felt "a little different" walking by the double doors leading to the Rays' clubhouse on Friday.

"I never walked past these doors from the other side before," he said, smiling.

"It's been kind of a whirlwind," Brignac said of the past week. "I've been up and down emotionally. Hopefully, I can stick around for a while. It would be nice."
