The New York Mets are set to call up outfielder Andrew Brown from Triple-A for this weekend's series against the Atlanta Braves. There has not been any news on who will be sent down to open a spot for Brown.
Brown, 28, signed with New York as a free agent in January, reports ESPN New York. Brown has played in 57 major league games over the past two seasons with the Colorado Rockies and the St. Louis Cardinals. Brown has hit .224 with a .679 OPS in the majors.
He has mashed in Triple-A Las Vegas this season. In 25 games, he already has 27 RBI and a .367/.440/.622 batting line. Nearly half of his 36 hits have gone for extra bases. Brown has always been a very good hitter in the minor leagues. For one reason or another, he has failed to find consistent at bats in the majors.
If there is one team in the MLB this season where Brown has a chance to work his way into the lineup, it's the Mets. They are currently starting Juan Lagares and Marlon Byrd in the outfield with Lucas Duda. Jordan Valdespin has also received significant playing time. Mets' right fielders have just a .279 wOBA on the season, third worst in the major leagues.
Brown has played half of his career minor league games in the outfield corners.
