Nationals Trade Corey Brown To Oakland

Posted on December 20, 2013 by Todd Karpovich

The Washington Nationals traded outfielder Corey Brown to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for cash considerations Dec. 19.

MLB: Corey Brown (Nationals)

Brown batted .167 with one home run and one RBI during 14 games for the Nationals after they called him up from Triple-A Syracuse in September. He established himself as a solid prospect with the Chiefs in 2013 after hitting 19 home runs with 56 RBIs during 107 games.

Brown, who can play all three outfield positions, returns to Oakland, the franchise that originally selected him out of Oklahoma State as a first-round pick during the 2007 amateur draft. He was traded to Washington Dec. 16, 2010, with right-handed pitcher Henry Rodriguez in exchange for outfielder Josh Willingham.

The Brown trade was the third deal during the past month that Washington and Oakland managed to put together.

The Nationals acquired lefty reliever Jerry Blevins in exchange for outfielder and solid prospect Billy Burns at the 2013 Major League Baseball winter meetings. Washington also traded Fernando Abad for A's minor league outfielder John Wooten Nov. 25.
