2022 Player Outlook

Brown has some serious pop in his bat, as he has a career 13.7 percent barrel rate and a 20.3 degree launch angle for his career lends itself to the long ball. He hit 20 home runs (14.05 AB/HR) last year with 48 RBI and a .214 batting average. To his credit, his .225 xBA indicates that he might have been a bit unlucky last year. However, it will likely be tough for him to be a full time contributor unless Oakland trusts him versus southpaws (.504 OPS in 22 AB vs. LHP in 2021). Brown logged 281 at-bats last year, and just 22 came against southpaws. In those at-bats, he hit .136 with a .504 OPS and struck out seven times (31.8 K%). Brown has plenty of power, but he could find his at-bats minimized when the opposition is throwing a southpaw. Southpaw struggles aside, if they let him play full time, he could easily hit 25+ long balls.
