even if I had multiple aces and desperate for HR, I would consider many more players before I got to Brown. and then even getting to Brown, I would laugh and say uhh no.
Brown currently has 30.2 HR/FB with 34.1 FB%. unlikely to continue. he can be "good", but IMO not elite level production.
If I were doing a seasonal projection right now I would put him in the .280, 20-25HR and 10-15 SB range.
He's a decent HR threat because he pulls the ball down the line and plays in Philly but he really isn't hitting the ball that far (377 avg distance on HRs). Upton is the complete opposite (as one example). He hasn't hit a HR less 400 ft and he has spread them all over the field. this is actually not related to Brown but I was at http://www.hittrackeronline.com/detail. ... ype=hitter
I would agree with those full season type projections. but with what he is doing I think some people want to now have Bautista type projections from when he burst threw with the HR a few years ago.
