The Mets now have 2,302,884 outfielders in their organization with the addition of Emil Brown from the San Diego Padres.
No word on who went West for Brown, but I wouldn’t worry that your favorite player is no longer with the Mets.
Updated – 4:10 p.m.: It’s a “player to be named later.”
In 736 career games spanning nine seasons, Brown has a .258 batting average and .323 on-base percentage.
Last season, with Oakland, he hit .244 / .297 / .386 with 13 HR and 59 RBI.
Brown will report to Triple-A Buffalo.
Could this mean the Mets are planning to keep Fernando Martinez around long-term? Seems it. That would also likely spell the end of Ryan Church in New York.
