Brown was cut loose by San Francisco on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Brown spent the entirety of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level, hitting .242/.331/.273 with 12 RBI in 41 games with Sacramento. He was actually released and then re-signed by the Giants during the middle of the season, and will look for a new home in 2019.
Brown signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Brown has struck a new deal with the Giants after being released Saturday. He'll report back to Triple-A Sacramento and serve as organizational catching depth.
Brown was released by the Giants on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Brown had a .163/.208/.199 slash line in 196 at-bats at Triple-A Sacramento last season and played in only nine games thus far in 2018. The 26-year-old will hope to land a minor-league contract elsewhere after also struggling throughout spring training.
Brown was moved to minor-league camp Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
After slashing .163/.208/.199 over 58 games at Triple-A Sacramento in 2017, Brown's dismal hitting display continued this spring. The 26-year-old backstop went just 3-for-24 (.125) with eight strikeouts over 13 Cactus League games for San Francisco. Look for him to return to Triple-A Sacramento this season.
Brown (concussion) is 2-for-9 with two RBI and a run scored since returning from the disabled list with Triple-A Sacramento.
Brown missed two weeks of action after incurring a concussion in late June. He'll resume his regular spot in the River Cats' catching rotation now as he looks to improve on his rough .153/.216/.169 slash line.
Brown was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Sacramento with a concussion Friday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Brown suffered the concussion after being struck by a foul tip during Wednesday's game. The 25-year-old hasn't played in any games for the Giants this season after appearing in 75 contests in 2016. During his time with Sacramento this year, Brown is hitting just .148/.210/.165 with no home runs and no RBI in 115 at-bats.
Brown (ankle) was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento upon the completion of his rehab assignment Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Brown rolled his ankle March 21 and has been on the disabled list all season. With Buster Posey and Nick Hundley already in place at catcher for the Giants, Brown will serve as organizational depth.
Brown (ankle) has joined Triple-A Sacramento as part of his rehab assignment, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Brown rolled his ankle on March 21 and has been working his way back to playing condition over the past several weeks. It remains a possibility that the reserve catcher will stay with Triple-A Sacramento following his rehab stint, while Buster Posey and Nick Hundley hold down the major-league spots.
Brown (ankle) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Brown is still working his way back from a rolled ankle on March 21. His DL stint is retroactive to March 30, so he'll be eligible to return as soon as April 9.
Brown is feeling better but needs another week to recover after rolling his ankle Tuesday, so he'll probably head to Triple-A Sacramento to start the season, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
The club's third catcher may not have made the roster anyway, consider Nick Hundley ranks as the backup to Buster Posey. Expect Brown to play frequently at Sacramento in the early part of the 2017 season, whenever he can return.
Brown rolled his ankle on Tuesday and is being labeled as day-to-day, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
The injury doesn't seem overly serious, and it appears Brown shouldn't be sidelined for too long. The 25-year-old has seen all but four of his 50 innings this spring behind the dish, and with the recent acquisition of Nick Hundley, it seems unlikely he'll crack the roster as a third catcher.
Brown will see some playing time at second base this spring and may also play first or third, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
This move makes sense following the offseason acquisition of Nick Hundley. Brown started 97 games at second base in the minors between 2013 and 2014, so a move to the infield should come naturally. If it works out, it could allow the Giants to carry three catchers. Brown slashed .237/.283/.364 in 75 games last season and could now see a more expansive role if he turns in a strong spring.
Brown (illness) will start behind the dish Friday against Jon Lester and the Cubs, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
Brown was going to get a spot start Thursday, but an illness kept him on the bench. He is still battling the virus but is reportedly healthy enough to suit up Friday. While a game against Jon Lester is rarely one to take advantage of, the righty-lefty matchup could make Brown a decent punt play at catcher in daily formats.
Brown finished 3-for-5 with three RBI during Sunday's 8-7 loss to the Orioles.
Making his weekly start as Buster Posey took a seat, Brown notched his third three-hit game of the season and drove in his first runs of the month. Brown has proven himself to be more than just a capable backup, as his numbers project favorable when extrapolated over a full season, but he is unlikely to see significant playing time at any point unless Posey is forced to miss time.
Brown went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Buster Posey served as the DH, opening up catcher for Brown's first start since the third of July, and the rookie celebrated his return to the lineup with a bang. The homer was his first since way back on May 15, but Brown has been reasonably productive on those relatively rare occasions on which he's gotten into the lineup.
Brown will draw the start at catcher and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Rays, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Playing in an American League park will allow manager Bruce Bochy to utilize Posey as his DH for the second straight day, resulting in another start for Brown behind the plate. Brown came through with a 3-for-3 showing Saturday, but given his limited offensive production throughout his minor-league career, expectations going forward should remain tempered.
Brown is in the lineup for Saturday's tilt with the Cubs.
Buster Posey will slide over to first base, while Brown will handle duties behind the plate Saturday. He will have a touch matchup against the left-handed Jon Lester, as he is just 1-for-14 against southpaws as a starter this season.
Brown got the start behind the dish Sunday and went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in a 2-1 win over Arizona.
This was Brown's first home run since April 12 when he smashed a pair of homers against the Rockies in Coors. The fact that he has four long balls in the majors is a miracle in and of itself, considering that his previous career-high in homers was three over 423 plate appearances with Low-A Augusta in 2013. Barring a prolonged slump, Brown has earned the right to remain Buster Posey's backup even when Andrew Susac (wrist) regains his health.
Brown is in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Giants, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.
Brown will start for Buster Posey who had started each of the last seven games at catcher or first base. The 24-year-old has been fantastic off the bench so far, hitting .353 with three home runs and seven RBI in seven games played.
Buster Posey (foot) is making his return to the lineup Thursday, effectively pushing Trevor Brown back to the bench.
Brown has done an amazing job filling in for Posey (.417, three homers, seven RBI), especially considering the fact that he had almost no track record of success in the minors prior to this season. With Posey back, Brown's value takes a huge hit as he will return to seeing around one start per week. He could be a value play in daily fantasy leagues when he receives a spot-start, but he should be released back into the free agent pond in standard fantasy formats.
