Scouting Report
: Brown is an excellent defensive catcher with an exceptionally strong arm.   Works well with the pitchers and calls a solid game.  Decent bat, gap power and average-to-above-average plate discipline.  Somewhat of a streaky hitter.  Well built, strong lower body. Athletic for a catcher, but still not going to be a threat on the base paths. Tough as nails.  Brown has the makings of a great backup catcher at the MLB level and, if he can keep improving with the bat, might even get a chance to start at some point.
