Audy Alexander Ciriaco Leguisamon (born June 16, 1987) is a Dominican minor league baseball shortstop in the Cleveland Indians organization. He is the younger brother of Kansas City Royals infielder Pedro Ciriaco. He began his career in the Detroit Tigers minor league system.
Ciriaco started his career as a non–drafted free agent. He was signed by the Detroit Tigers on February 16, 2005. He began as a member of the Gulf Coast League Tigers, a minor league affiliate of the Tigers, and batted .250 in 40 games during the 2005 season. Baseball America named him as the 24th–best prospect the Tigers had at that time.
In 2006, Ciriaco again spent the season in the Gulf Coast League. He appeared in 50 games and his batting average dropped to .217. Defensively, he was part of 31 double plays, the most for any shortstop in the league.
Ciriaco was promoted to the West Michigan Whitecaps in 2007 and he played in 121 games, seeing action in more games than he had during his first two seasons combined. He batted .224 with 4 home runs and 39 runs batted in.
Ciriaco remained with the Whitecaps for 2008, appearing in 107 games. He committed 41 errors during the season, the most by any shortstop in the Midwest League. A right quadriceps strain kept him out of the action from July 11–27.
Ciriaco spent the majority of the 2009 season as a member of the Erie Seawolves before receiving a September promotion to the Toledo Mud Hens, where he saw action in only seven games. In his 121 appearances for Erie, he posted a batting average of .262 and blasted a career–high 11 home runs. His 59 RBI were also a career best.
Due to three separate trips to the disabled list, all of which were due to contusions of either his left hand or wrist, Ciriaco played in only 62 games during the 2010 season, all but one of them with Erie. He batted .241 for the Seawolves, with 9 homers and 36 RBI. He was moved to Toledo on July 26, but only appeared in one game for the Mud Hens, as his third injury would end his season just two days later.
Ciriaco played most of the 2011 season with Erie, where he appeared in 101 games and batted .277 with 5 homers and 55 RBI. He also played in 14 games with Toledo, posting an .093 average and driving in two runs.
In 2012, Ciriaco played in 102 games for the Mud Hens and batted .224. It was his lowest overall average for a full season since he hit .224 in 2007. However, he did set a new career–high by hitting 12 home runs.
He signed a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians before the 2014 season.
