Latest Update Athletics have non-tendered Kyle Blanks and Andrew Brown Tue Dec, 02, 10:53 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.
Kyle Blanks is a player that has a lot of potential, but it's never resonated at the big league level. With that said, he'll be able to find a job with another club over the winter.Analyst: David Kerr
If Brown doesn't go to the assigned minor league affiliate, he will test the free agent market. In 19 games last season, he hit .182 with two home runs.Analyst: Colby Conway
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
