Cape Cod- A highly athletic talent, Brown has a unique setup in the batter's box with his hands extended straight out, while pointing his bat straight up into the air before bringing both back towards his body as the pitch is thrown. He continues his pre-pitch with a large load and stands on one foot until the pitch is released. It is a very complicated process and could be tough to repeat for lesser athletes. He also gets out on his front foot to hit, but his hand/eye is remarkable and he consistently put the bat on the ball. The righthanded hitter finished the Cape season with a .282 batting average and a .375 OBP which was the result of 11 walks and seven hit by pitch against 20 strikeouts. At 5-foot-11, 190 pounds Brown also brings some sneaky pop to the plate. He has quick hip rotation and uses his entire body to produce power, slugging .475 with five home runs in 117 at-bats. In his very first game on the Cape this summer he belted a 424-foot home run. On the bases Brown is an average runner, clocking a 4.30 down the line to the back of the first base bag. He also runs with good instincts. Defensively, he showed near average arm strength with a quick release, allowing his arm to play up to average. A twitchy athlete with good feet, he can occasionally play too fast, causing him to boot a routine ground ball. Despite this current lack of polish, Brown has a high baseball IQ and should be able to stick at shortstop as a future average defender in pro ball. With two solid seasons for the Chants already on his resume (.294/.413/.513, 11 stolen bases as a sophomore last spring) and a solid Cape performance this summer, Brown will be further crosschecked this fall. And with continued strong performance, he will likely be considered for the top five rounds next summer.
