Nationals Designate Corey Brown For Assignment

The Nationals announced that they have designated outfielder Corey Brown for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Nate McLouth.

Brown, 28, is a career .175/.250/.400 batter in 45 Major League plate appearances. At the Triple-A level, he's slashed .254/333/.461 in 1602 career plate appearances. Brown and right-hander Henry Rodriguez were acquired by the Nationals in the 2010 trade that sent Josh Willingham to Oakland. The A's took him in the supplemental round of the 2007 draft as compensation for the los of Frank Thomas.

    Phillies really should claim this guy. Sandberg says he need a right handed center fielder power bat. Well that’s is what Brown is, and even though he hit at AAA every single year for 4 years now, the Nats never game him a real chance. He could be the Brandon Moss type that we let slip away.

      Brown is a left-handed hitter.

        Must have misread that when I saw them describing right-hander Henry Rodriguez. In that case, we need a Corey Brown that can bat from the right side of the plate.

    Too bad. Brown has a lot of promise but was never given a chance. I don’t think this is the last of him.
