2020 Fantasy Outlook
Brown has now hit 30 or more home runs in two of the past three minor-league seasons. Before you get too excited; one season came as a 24-year-old in High-A, and one came last year in the PCL with the happy fun ball. The lefty hit 28 of his 37 homers against righties last year, and had a .999 OPS against righties compared to an .837 OPS vs lefties. He strikes out quite a bit, yet still has managed to hit for a decent average -- no worse than .283 at his last three stops. Last year's Triple-A numbers have to be taken with a grain of salt given the physics of the baseball and that Brown wasn't even a top-30 prospect in the Oakland organization heading into last season. He turns 28 this year, so his prospect status is behind him, but he looked good at the plate in his time at the big-league level. There's a lot working against him, but Brown may be able to make this work with a good RH platoon partner. Read Past Outlooks

Bumped off active roster
OFOakland Athletics  AAA
August 6, 2020
The Athletics optioned Brown to their alternate training site in San Jose on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Brown and pitcher James Kaprielian were the casualties as Oakland trimmed its active roster from 30 to 28 men prior to Thursday's deadline to do so. A reserve outfielder/designated hitter, Brown had started in just one of Oakland's first 12 games and had logged three plate appearances overall.
