Brown came into his own as a sophomore at OSU last spring, hitting .316/.378/.441 with 15 doubles as a catalyst for the Cowboys. He then took his lumps last summer in the Cape, hitting .236 with 31 strikeouts against 10 walks. He started the 2023 season 1-for-9 with four strikeouts at the Showdown. At 5-foot-11, 190 pounds he's a strong, quick-twitch athlete with decent bat speed, but his swing has some length, and he continues to be a bit pull-happy in our looks. Brown is a good runner who is aggressive on the basepaths, and he has adequate range and an average arm with a quick release that plays at shortstop at this level, though he likely profiles better at second base in pro ball. At this point, I see Brown as a very solid college player, yet one who projects as a mid-to-later Day Two pick instead of the one who has received Day One hype elsewhere this preseason.

Cape Cod: Brown came into his own as a sophomore at OSU this spring, hitting .316/.378/.441 with 15 doubles as a catalyst for the Cowboys. He took his lumps this summer in the Cape, hitting .236 with 31 strikeouts against 10 walks, but he also led the Anglers with seven doubles in a team-high 144 at-bats. Brown is a classic cage rat who works hard on his swing, which begins with an open, athletic crouch from the left side. He's a wiry, quick-twitch athlete with decent bat speed, but his swing has some length, and he appeared a bit pull-happy in our looks. Brown is a good runner who is aggressive on the basepaths, and he has adequate range and an average arm that plays at shortstop at this level, though he likely profiles better at second base in pro ball.

Brown is a 5-foot-11 175-pound infielder with an athletic frame and build. He showed to be an advanced player as a defender and as a left-handed hitter. Offensively he starts from an athletic stance, he uses a slight load stride combination. He attacks the baseball with intent on a slight uphill swing. He produced exit velocity up to 83 mph. Defensively he works through the baseball with fluid action, soft hands, a quick exchange and an accurate arm from a ¾ arm slot. He threw the baseball 80 mph across the infield. He ran a 7.55 in the 60. Overall Brown is an advanced player, his athleticism will determine if he stays in the middle of the infielder or moves to a corner but he is offensive and had good defensive actions.
