Reid Michael Brignac (pronounced Brin-yac) (born January 16, 1986) is a Major League Baseball shortstop for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Brignac was drafted by Tampa Bay Rays in the second round (45th overall) of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft out of St. Amant High School as a shortstop. Baseball America rated Brignac as the 17th best MLB prospect in 2007 and 39th best in 2008.

Brignac was called up from the minors on July 3, 2008, after Jason Bartlett was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He made his major league debut on July 4, 2008. He was optioned back to Durham on July 15, 2008, having gone hitless in his first 10 major league at-bats with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts over 4 games. Brignac got his first career hit, a single, on May 22, 2009 against the Florida Marlins.
