Latest Update Mets have optioned Andrew Brown to Triple-A Las Vegas. Mon Jun, 16, 04:13 PM
Hits for a good average, displays some power and the ability to draw walks on a semi-regular basis. Can excel against left-handed pitching.
Flaws: : Strikes out too much for his middling level of power. Isn't much of a threat on the base-paths and only an average defender. Lacks consistency.
Brown was only slashing .182/.245/.341 with two home runs and seven RBI over 44 at-bats in a time share with three others in the outfield, so with Eric Young, Jr. coming off the DL, he was the expendable guy. He could be back at some point this season, but the crowded outfield situation really needs to thin out.Analyst: Howard Bender
Getting a rare start in left field, Brown proved Terry Collins right with his second home run of the season. He was just called up from Triple-A Las Vegas with Juan Lagares hitting the DL, though it could be tough for him to find at-bats while Matt den Dekker, Eric Campbell and Bobby Abreu are still around. He's not much for the fantasy world though unless the Mets commit to starting him regularly and continue to keep Young over in center.Analyst: Howard Bender
Brown will not be activated until Thursday at which point the Mets will send down the extra bullpen arm they have been carrying.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Bobby Abreu is now 40 years old but the old guy has been getting it done at Triple-A. He's posted a .395 average with a homer and nin RBI in his first 15 games. I'm really not sure how much playing time he'll get or what kind of role he'll have but I'd be interested in picking him up in NL-only leagues. Brown was batting .185 with a homerun and five RBI.
