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.
