Brown put up huge numbers early in his Minor League career. In 2011, his first full pro season, he hit .336/.407/.519 with 14 home runs and 53 steals for Class A Advanced San Jose. Brown never replicated that offensive success, and he hit .271/.329/.394 with 10 homers, 36 steals and 119 strikeouts for Triple-A Fresno last season.
A right-handed batter, Brown has played center field almost exclusively, and he has stolen 141 bases (in 210 attempts) over 550 Minor League games.
