Date:

Corey Brown has elected free agency.

He had the option after being outrighted off his second 40-man roster in the last two months. Brown, 28, spent nearly all of last season at Triple-A with the Nationals, batting .254/.326/.473 with 19 homers and 12 steals.
Jan 31 - 1:29 PM

Athletics sent OF Corey Brown outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Brown had been designated for assignment last week, but he's cleared waivers and can elect free agency if he so chooses. It was the second time since December that the 28-year-old was removed from a 40-man roster.
Jan 31 - 8:25 AM

Athletics designated OF Corey Brown for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the addition of left-hander Eric O'Flaherty. Brown, 28, was just acquired from the Nationals last month for cash considerations. Now he could be on the move once again.
Jan 22 - 1:41 PM

Athletics acquired OF Corey Brown from the Nationals for cash considerations.

Brown, 28, was taken by the Athletics in the first round (59th overall) in the 2007 draft. He went to the Nationals with reliever Henry Rodriguez in December 2010 in the Josh Willingham trade. Brown has hit at every level of his ascent through the minors but he repeated at Triple-A Syracuse in 2012-13. The Nationals had designated him for assignment to make room for Nate McLouth.

Nationals designated OF Corey Brown for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Nate McLouth on the 40-man roster. Brown, 28, appeared in 14 games with the Nationals this past season and was mostly organizational depth.

Nationals recalled OF Corey Brown from Triple-A Syracuse.

He and Eury Perez will join Scott Hairston as depth behind Bryce Harper, Denard Span and Jayson Werth down the stretch. Brown has a little pop and speed, but the 27-year-old doesn't figure to see the field enough to employ either to the degree that would justify a transaction in NL-only leagues.

Nationals optioned OF Corey Brown to Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown hit .275/.315/.373 this spring in the Grapefruit League and wasn't able to earn a 25-man roster spot. He'll function as organizational outfield depth this year.

Corey Brown hit a pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday, giving the Nationals a come-from-behind 7-6 victory over the Marlins.

The Nats trailed 6-5 entering the bottom of the ninth and then had to deal with a rain delay that lasted nearly 2 1/2 hours. When play eventually resumed, Jayson Werth blasted a game-tying solo homer off Heath Bell to force extra innings. The Nats started the home half of the 10th with two singles and an intentional walk to load the bases with no outs. After Kurt Suzuki hit into a fielder's choice, Brown batted for Drew Storen and came through with the critical RBI knock. He's hitting .222 (4-for-18) with a homer and three RBI in limited action this season.

Nationals recalled OF Corey Brown from Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown has appeared in nine games with the Nats this year, but has spent the majority of the season at Triple-A, batting .285/.365/.523 with 25 home runs, 71 RBI, 18 stolen bases and an .888 OPS in 126 games. He's unlikely to get enough playing time to be fantasy relevant.

Nationals optioned OF Corey Brown to Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown, a supplemental first-round pick of the A's in 2007 who was later involved in a trade for Josh Willingham, was jettisoned to make roster room for Chad Tracy. The 26-year-old has raked at Triple-A this season and we expect him to continue to do so until Washington summons him later summer.

Nationals recalled OF Corey Brown from Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown, a supplemental first-round pick of the A's in 2007 who was later involved in a trade for Josh Willingham, has only seven plate appearances in his major league career thus far. The 26-year-old has raked at Triple-A this season, posting a .944 OPS and 21 homers in 94 games. He'll act as a reserve outfield for the Nationals.

Nationals optioned OF Corey Brown to Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown was hitless in just three at-bats after being called up on Monday. He'll return to a .983 OPS at Triple-A Syracuse.
Fri, Jun 1, 2012 03:39:00 PM

Nationals purchased the contract of OF Corey Brown from Triple-A Syracuse.

Brown will function as depth for the Nationals' bench while Chad Tracy recovers from a groin injury. The 26-year-old was on a roll at the Triple-A level but seems doubtful to carry much in the way of fantasy value.
Mon, May 28, 2012 11:09:00 AM

The Nationals have summoned OF Corey Brown to their taxi squad.

He'll be promoted on Monday if Chad Tracy (groin) is placed on the disabled list. Brown, 26, has 12 home runs and a .983 OPS at Triple-A Syracuse. He figures to get most of his at-bats against right-handed pitching.
