Rockies placed RHP Brooks Brown on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 4, with right shoulder inflammation.

The shoulder has been bothering Brown for over a week now, and the Rockies finally decided it'd be better to put him on the disabled list and get a fresh arm for the bullpen. He should be ready to return shortly after he's eligible.

Rockies signed RHP Brooks Brown to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old spent the 2013 season in the Pirates organization, registering a 4.75 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 69/24 K/BB ratio in 91 innings at Triple-A Indianapolis. He'll function as organizational depth for the Rockies.

Pirates signed RHP Brooks Brown to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. Brown, 27, had a 4.90 ERA and 81/58 K/BB ratio in 112 innings over 19 relief appearances and 10 starts this year with the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate.

Tigers acquired RHP Brooks Brown from the Diamondbacks for catcher James Skelton.

Brown, a 2006 supplemental first-round pick, has yet to develop a consistent secondary pitch and doesn't get enough grounders with his 89-92 mph fastball. He finished 6-15 with a 4.18 ERA and a 112/67 K/BB ratio in 144 1/3 innings in Double-A last season. A move to the pen might give him some additional velocity and turn him back into prospect, but we're guessing the Diamondbacks won't regret parting with him.

Diamondbacks reassigned RHP Brooks Brown, RHP Hector Ambriz, RHP Barry Enright, RHP Matt Green, RHP Wes Roemer, LHP Mark Rosen, 1B-3B Jamie D'Antona, C Frank Curreri and OF Chris Rahl to minor league camp.

All easy cuts. Brown rates as one of the Diamondbacks' better prospects, but he's a long shot to see time in the majors this year. D'Antona could see time on the bench if injuries strike.

Brooks Brown allowed one run in five innings Saturday in his debut for Double-A Mobile.

Brown struck out five. The 2006 supplemental first-round pick was 6-3 with a 2.81 ERA, 66 H and 74/23 K/BB in 80 IP for Single-A Visalia. The Diamondbacks intend to keep using him as a starter, but he might fit in best as a long-term setup man for the club.
