Ok, What About Seth Brown?

by Paul Semendinger

January 4, 2022

***

Seth Brown is an outfielder. He has power. He bats left-handed.


I assume, at 30-years-old, and just now coming into his own, he also can't be expensive enough to cost the Yankees one of the (hopeful) future stars.


It seems (according the MLBTR) that Seth Brown of the A's might be available.


Here are Seth Brown's stats from Baseball-Reference:


Baseball -Reference further projects that Brown will hit .226/22/66 in 2023 for the A's.


As he has aged, he has performed better and better. Brown might be a late-bloomer...


Would he a good fit for the Yankees?


***

Of note, late yesterday, the Yankees signed Rafael Ortega, another low-budget outfielder to a minor league deal.


The Yankees are sure acquiring outfield depth pieces. In the last few weeks, they have also acquired the following outfielders signing all to minor league contracts:


Billy McKinney

Willie Calhoun

Michael Hermosillo


The Yankees are certainly creating depth.


Is this the strategy for 2023?


With this collection of talent, does that indicate that the Yankees are ready to move on from Aaron Hicks?


Are these moves that indicate a bigger move is coming?

They're very deep in the outfield; they need a really good middle infielder, something the Yanks have an abundance of. The Brewers actually have a stunningly deep roster, but they need someone with the potential to be more high-end. I wonder how they feel about one of Gleyber or Peraza as a centerpiece to a deal....

Here's the skinny on Brown from Baseball Savant (the red stuff is good the blue stuff is bad):



Seems like he's got some pop but strikes out a lot and is not great defensively.

It seems as if they''re lining up a bunch of guys that will make Aaron Hicks look good by comparison.

it's a fine thing to do when there's no good trade to be made.

the team always needs back-up depth.


and I will once again remind all the kids of Cashman's adage about paying too much for hitters in the off-season and too much for pitchers during the season.

interesting. Brown might be a serviceable replacement for Carpenter


and if the A's are willing to use Brown as a throw-in in a trade for Puk, the Yankees should look into it

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
