Red Sox Designate Corey Brown For Assignment

The Red Sox have designated Corey Brown for assignment, according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal (on Twitter).  The move will help create room for reliever Steven Wright.

Brown, 28, saw action in three games and made just one plate appearance in this year’s stint with the Red Sox.  Brown has spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A Pawtucket, where he posted a slash line of .226/.294/.452.  Over parts of five seasons at Triple-A, the outfielder has hit .249/.326/.459.

    If I remember correctly, he came with Henry Rodriguez from the A’s in the Josh Willingham trade. That is one the A’s definitely won. I hope Brown can carve out some more major league service time for himself, though.

      Josh WIllingham? He was never on the Red Sox…

        Sorry- I meant when the Nationals traded Willingham to the A’s. I should have been clear.
