Brown doesn't get cheated at the plate, as he works the count extremely well, and takes his hacks, which leads to a very lofty walk and strikeout totals. He struggled initially hitting with a wood bat on the Cape last summer, but turned his season around to raise his batting average, even though it still was below the Mendoza line. His .305 OBP relative to his .192 batting average showed that he didn't lose his approach despite struggling. Brown is a fine overall athlete, a left-handed hitter and thrower that is very similar to his favorite big-league player, Jim Edmonds. He has enough speed, and is a savvy baserunner, leading to a very good success rate in stolen base attempts. He is also a chiseled athlete at 6'2", 210 pounds. His big swing leads to plenty of extra-base hits, and he is overall a very exciting and productive ballplayer with the statistical success to back up his accomplishments. Brown was named the Cape League's 16th best prospect last summer according to Perfect Game Crosschecker, and he was named the third-best prospect in the Florida State Collegiate Summer League the summer before by Baseball America. He was also named the Big 12 Freshman of the Year.
