Rockies Claim Andrew Brown

The Rockies announced that they claimed Andrew Brown off of waivers from the Cardinals (Twitter link). St. Louis had designated the versatile 27-year-old for assignment over the weekend to create roster space for Lance Lynn.

Brown appeared in 11 games for the Cardinals this June, but spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he made the Pacific Coast League All-Star team. In 428 plate appearances with the Cardinals' top affiliate, Brown posted a .284/.382/.501 line with 20 homers. He played all four corner positions for the second consecutive season.

This is Andrew Brown the outfielder, not the reliever..

Like his arm in the outfield but with Berkman, Jay, Holliday, Chambers ect in the mix for next season he was sure to be a roster casualty at one point or another

Adding Lynn was worth it but you can’t be happy losing a quality talent like that

Wouldn’t call Brown “quality talent”. He’s likely a AAAA guy. There was no room for him with the Cardinals, even as a 5th outfielder. He deserves a chance with someone.

DARN…I was hoping he’d clear waivers.  We DO have a surplus of good but not great position players, so I’m glad he’ll get a chance with someone else…erxcept the Cubs, of course!
