Jordan Brown On The Move?
Triple-A Columbus first baseman/outfielder Jordan Brown is not playing today. On top of that, outfielder Mickey Hall was promoted from Akron to Columbus earlier today and is playing for Columbus in their game this afternoon.
This could simply just be a day of rest for Brown since he has not had an off day in forever, it could be an unknown injury, it could be a trade, it could be he is on his way to Cleveland to join the big league club.....or it could be completely nothing. I am just making note of it though only because of the addition of a player (an outfielder no less) and no one being subtracted (yet) from the Columbus roster, which is sort of fishy. For those wondering, Matt LaPorta is playing first base today.
Edit: Nevermind. Brown had some discomfort in his shoulder as a result of a minor twinge in batting practice so he was sidelined for the game today temporarily.
