The San Francisco Giants have assigned second baseman/catcher Trevor Brown to Class A-Advanced San Jose on Wednesday.
Brown hit .250/.304/.326 with 18 doubles, one triple and three home runs in 423 plate appearances for the Augusta GreenJackets. He added 10 stolen bases while walking 27 times.
Brown spent time at second base and behind the plate with Augusta, playing 76 games at second and 13 at catcher. He made big steps during his transition to second base after early-season shakiness, and the GreenJackets coaching staff had nothing but praise for his hard work in getting better at the position.
It's unclear how San Jose will use Brown, but time will tell. A slew of infielders have played second base for the Giants over the past few games, including Bobby Haney, Ryan Cavan and Brock Bond. The Giants have Jeff Arnold and Eric Sim at catcher.
The GreenJackets will receive infielder Rando Moreno from the AZL Giants as the corresponding move. Aside from having a great name, Moreno has been hitting in the AZL as a 21-year-old, recording a .342/.403/.453 triple slash in 130 plate appearances.
Moreno is said to have a solid glove and can play both middle infield positions. He was signed out of the Dominican Republic and spent two seasons in the Dominican Summer League before making his stateside debut this year.
