Cardinals Designate Andrew Brown For Assignment

The Cardinals have designated Andrew Brown for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Lance Lynn, according to Matthew Leach of MLB.com.  Lynn, a right-handed pitcher, was tabbed by the Cards in the first-round of the 2008 draft.

Brown posted a slash line of .182/.182/.227 in 22 plate appearances for the Cards this season but he hit .284/.382/.501 with 20 homers in 428 plate appearances for Triple-A Memphis.  The 27-year-old spent most of this season at Memphis playing in the corner outfield spots but has plenty of first base experience under his belt as well.

Huh? thought Lynn was a 2nd round pick. No need for Brown with Craig ready to play right field.

Lynn was 39th overall. 1st Supplemental round.

This guy was the talk of the Cards minor league system offense-wise until he got called up.  I was hoping he’d make for a good trade chip.  He strikes out way too much against major league pitching but that could be worked on with a good hitting coach. I’d be surprised if he cleared outright waivers, but it would be nice to get something back for him.
