Brewers acquire lefty bat Brown from Indians

By Guy Curtright,

Adding a left-handed bat, the Brewers acquired outfielder-first baseman Jordan Brown from the Indians for cash considerations and assigned him to Triple-A Nashville.

The 27-year-old Brown had 87 at-bats in 26 games with the Indians last season and hit .230 with seven doubles, no homers and two RBIs. He spent most of the season at Triple-A Columbus, batting .298 with 28 doubles, eight homers and 67 RBIs.

Once a prime prospect, Brown was dropped from the Indians’ 40-man roster over the winter and assigned outright to the Minors. He was hitting .278 with three homers, 13 RBIs and a .373 on-base percentage this season with Columbus.

A fourth-round pick in the 2005 Draft after playing for Arizona in the College World Series, Brown was the Class A Advanced Carolina League Player of the Year in 2006 and the Double-A Eastern League MVP the following season.
