The Marlins have designated first baseman/outfielder Jordan Brown for assignment in order to clear a roster spot for left-hander Brian Flynn, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun-Sentinel (Twitter link).
Brown, 29, picked up 17 plate appearances for the Marlins this season, collecting three hits (including a double) and five RBIs in that small sample. In 324 plate appearances at Triple-A this season, the former fourth-round pick batted .289/.346/.385. Brown also saw a brief callup with the Indians in 2006 and has spent time with the Brewers organization as well.
The 23-year-old Flynn is one of three players acquired from the Tigers last summer in exchange for Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante (Jacob Turner and Rob Brantly were the others). In 138 innings at Triple-A New Orleans, he posted a 2.80 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9.
