Athletics' Seth Brown: Bumped off active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics optioned Brown to their alternate training site in San Jose on Thursday.

Brown and pitcher James Kaprielian were the casualties as Oakland trimmed its active roster from 30 to 28 men prior to Thursday's deadline to do so. A reserve outfielder/designated hitter, Brown had started in just one of Oakland's first 12 games and had logged three plate appearances overall.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Makes big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown was named to the Athletics' Opening Day roster Thursday as a fifth outfielder that can also fill in at first base, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area notes Brown was kept over a third catcher, which is partly explained by the fact the team's three-man taxi squad will be obligated to carry a backstop per MLB rules. Meanwhile, Brown, who slashed a solid .293/.361/.453 across his first 26 big-league games in 2019, is capable of offering some left-handed power off the bench following a pair of 30-homer campaigns at two different minor-league stops in the organization. He also has experience playing all three outfield spots and logged 203 starts at first base in the minors, making him a valuable asset defensively as well.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Excels in Cactus League play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown hit .343 (12-for-35) with five doubles, one triple, one home run, eight RBI, one walk and seven runs across 15 Cactus League games before spring training was suspended.

With the likelihood big-league rosters are expanded up to 29 players, Brown's chances of opening the delayed regular season with the Athletics appear particularly strong. In addition to his highly impressive spring, the 27-year-old was similarly successful at the plate in three different minor-league levels over the prior three seasons. He then held his own over his first 26 big-league games in 2019, posting a .293/.361/.453 line in 83 plate appearances. Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports Brown has been staying in shape in his home state of Oregon during the current layoff, working out with some equipment he borrowed from the gym he regularly utilizes and also hitting on a daily basis. Brown could fill in at both corner outfield spots and first base in 2020.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Making noise in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is hitting .375 (9-for-24) with four doubles, one triple, one home run, eight RBI, one walk and five runs over his first 10 Cactus League games.

Brown terrorized opposing arms with Triple-A Las Vegas in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League last season, generating an impressive .986 OPS while slugging a whopping 72 extra-base hits (29 doubles, six triples, 37 home runs). He then helped dispel the notion that he was simply a product of the system by holding his own against big-league arms in his first majors cup of coffee late in the season, slashing .293/.361/.453 across 83 plate appearances. His work this spring has included a four-game hitting streak, a grand slam against the Royals on Sunday and an extra-base hit in half of his 10 games. Essentially, Brown is making a strong case for the Opening Day roster, and his ability to fill in at first base and both corner outfield spots helps his cause.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Keeps blasting big-league pitchers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and another two-bagger in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Brown has made a mockery of big-league pitching since his late-August promotion, as he's now slashing .385/.439/.596 across his first 57 plate appearances in the majors. The 27-year-old has yet to leave the yard, but that's about the only blemish on his Athletics tenure thus far. Otherwise, Brown has nine extra-base hits (seven doubles, two triples) and has reached safely on 24 occasions overall, an extension of the success he enjoyed at Triple-A Las Vegas this past minor-league campaign (.297/.352/.634 over 500 plate appearances). Manager Bob Melvin has mostly steered the lefty-hitting rookie clear of same-handed matchups thus far, but Brown's blistering hot hitting and solid .262/.347/.542 line in 107 at-bats against southpaws at Triple-A this season could potentially open up a start or two versus a left-hander over the final two weeks of the campaign.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Benched versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

The Tigers are using a lefty (Daniel Norris) as their opening pitcher Sunday, so manager Bob Melvin will play matchups and swap the lefty-hitting Brown out for the right-handed Chad Pinder. Brown still looks poised to handle a large-side platoon role in the Athletics' corner outfield, at least until Stephen Piscotty (ankle) is back from the injured list.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is not starting Thursday against the Angels.

Brown is hitting .448 with a 1.174 OPS through his first eight big-league games, but he'll take a seat for Thursday's series finale against the Angels with lefty Jose Suarez serving as the primary pitcher for the opposition. Jurickson Profar is starting in left field and hitting fifth in this one.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Triples twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown went 2-for-3 with a pair of triples, a walk, two RBI and two runs Tuesday in the Athletics' 7-5 win over the Angels.

With a 1.174 OPS through his first eight games in the majors, Brown has essentially picked up right where he left off in the Pacific Coast League since his Aug. 26 promotion. Brown has probably done enough at this point to stick as a large-side platoon outfielder over Robbie Grossman when the Athletics likely return Ramon Laureano (lower leg) from the injured list this weekend.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Idle versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

The lefty-hitting rookie will take a seat with southpaw J.A. Happ twirling for the Yankees. Jurickson Profar will check in for Brown in the corner outfield.

Athletics' Seth Brown: Stays hot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown went 3-for-3 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in an 8-2 win over the Yankees on Friday.

Though he wasn't included in the lineup with the Yankees starting southpaw CC Sabathia on the mound, Brown came off the bench to pinch hit for Chad Pinder in the sixth inning, when righty reliever Tommy Kahnle was on the bump. Brown plated the tying run with a double to center field and then added two more run-scoring hits later in the contest. He'll be back in the lineup Saturday as the Athletics' starting left fielder and No. 6 hitter and will look to extend his RBI streak to four games.
