A's Acquire Dee Brown

It doesn't get much more minor than this, but the A's have made yet another move to bolster their outfield depth, grabbing Dee Brown from the D-Backs for cash.  I guess when you have a ton of minor league outfielders on the major league roster, you have to find somebody to man the position in Sacramento.

What strikes me as odd, though, is that a few weeks ago the A's sent Charles Thomas to Milwaukee for catcher J.D. Closser.  Oakland did need the catching insurance, but in a depth-for-depth swap, you'd think that Billy Beane could convince Doug Melvin to take someone other than Thomas in exchange.
