Giants recalled OF Gary Brown from Triple-A Fresno.
Brown was once considered among the game's top outfield prospects, but his stock has faded over the past couple of seasons. Now 25 years old, the 2010 first-round pick batted .271/.329/.394 with 10 home runs, 53 RBI, and 36 stolen bases over 136 games this season in Triple-A. With his defensive ability and speed, he could be a useful player for the Giants this month. Sep 2 - 9:11 AM

Date:

Giants prospect outfielder Gary Brown went 3-for-6 on Friday for Triple-A Fresno, and is now hitting .281/.350/.413 for the season.

This game was his fourth game with two-plus hits in his past six games, and he is hitting .333/.375/.533 over that time. Brown is unlikely to get a promotion to San Francisco without an injury, but he plays a great center field and, if he's able to hit .280 with some power, could be a starting center fielder for many teams in the major leagues. He is no longer the prospect he was in 2011 and 2012, but he could be a very useful player.
May 3 - 11:15 AM

Giants outfield prospect Gary Brown is hitting .317/.356/.561 through nine games for Triple-A Fresno.

It seems like just yesterday that the Giants refused to include him in the trade to the Mets for Carlos Beltran, trading Zack Wheeler instead. Since the end of 2011, Brown has struggled, hitting .279/.347/.385 for Double-A Richmond in 2012 and .231/.286/.375 for Triple-A Fresno in 2013. Brown seems to have taken a step forward in 2013, as six of his 13 hits have gone for extra bases. He is unlikely to see time in San Francisco without an injury, but if he keeps up this level of production he could be a tempting mid-season promotion.

Giants optioned OF Gary Brown to Triple-A Fresno.

Brown was one of several cuts on Wednesday in Giants camp. The 25-year-old outfielder did not have a great showing last summer at Triple-A, but the Giants are still high on his potential and could give him a look at some point in 2014. Brown as a first-round pick in 2010.
Mar 12 - 4:18 PM

Gary Brown filled up the box score in a losing effort against the A's on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI.

The 25-year-old outfielder also walked and swiped a base in the game. He had a very disappointing season in his first taste of Triple-A in 2013, slashing just .231/.286/.375 with 13 homers 50 RBI and 17 stolen bases, but remains a key part of the Giants future plans. With a strong showing in the spring, he could crack the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder.
Feb 28 - 8:23 PM

Giants purchased the contract of OF Gary Brown from Triple-A Fresno.

Brown's star has dimmed a bit since his breakout 2011, hitting just .231/.286/.375 at Triple-A last season. But the 25-year-old was once a top prospect in the game, and the Giants couldn't take the risk of losing him in December's Rule 5 Draft. He'll likely be given every chance to make the team out of spring training.

Giants prospect outfielder Gary Brown is back in the lineup for Double-A Richmond on Thursday after being hit in the head with a bat earlier this week.

Good news. Brown was hit with a backswing during batting practice, but fortunately all tests came back negative. The 23-year-old outfielder is hitting .285/.346/.402 with seven home runs, 37 RBI, 30 stolen bases and a .749 OPS in 113 games at the Double-A level this season and is a possibility to be called up to the majors when rosters expand in September.

Gary Brown has been invited to major league spring training.

A first round pick last summer, Brown did not light the world on fire in his first partial season in the minors, amassing seven hits and 12 strikeouts in 44 at-bats. Even a pitcher would cringe at those numbers. He'll need another one-to-many years in the minors before garnering serious attention.

The Giants have agreed to terms with first-round pick OF Gary Brown.

Brown, 21, was selected No. 24 overall in June's draft. The Cal State Fullerton product has signed for a bonus of $1.45 million. Brown is still a bit raw defensively, but his plus-speed projects him to be a potential top-of-the-order type in the big leagues.
