Brown is transitioning from an outfielder to pitcher, Mike Drago of the Reading Eagle reports.

Brown has struggled to produce as a hitter since being drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft. He was the Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year in 2014 at Pepperdine University, where he was 13-1 with a 1.95 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 64 innings. He is expected to begin pitching for one of the Phillies' minor-league clubs within a month.
