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 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.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 05:04:00 PM

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.
