Brown is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Yankees, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Brown has served as Oakland's primary right fielder against right-handed starters for the majority of the season, but he'll sit Friday's series opener against righty Jameson Taillon.

After coming off the bench to go 2-for-2 with a home run in Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay, Brown was awarded with a pair of starts to close out the weekend.
