He was named the Indians' 2007 Minor League Player of the Year (receiving the "Lou Boudreau Award").[2]

Brown was designated for assignment by the Indians on January 6, 2011, removing him from the 40-man roster. He was subsequently ourighted to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers on January 14. He was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers on May 2 for cash considerations.[3] He spent most of the 2011 season with the Nashville Sounds, and hit .306 in 104 games with the team. He was released by Brewers before start of minor league season.
