Could see big-league time this year
PMilwaukee Brewers  AAA
March 4, 2020
Manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Brown could pitch for the big club at some point this season, Adam McCalvy of reports. "It's a name we don't talk about a lot, but a name who can help us this year," Counsell said in regards to Brown. "One of those we're maybe not counting on on Opening Day, but one of those guys who can impact us during the season."
Brown appeared to be well on his way toward being an impact player at the big-league level after a fine 2018 season with Double-A Biloxi, but he struggled last year in his first Triple-A stint and lost a lot of the shine on his prospect status. While Counsell's comments point toward Brown starting the year in the minors, they also indicate he could make his big-league debut at some point in 2020, possibly as a starter but more likely as a reliever.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Brown hit the Double-A level for the first time last season, and Southern League hitters didn't provide much resistance, as he dominated opposing batters en route to being named pitcher of the year in both the league and the Brewers organization. He isn't overpowering in the traditional sense, averaging under a strikeout per inning in his career, but thanks to a three-pitch combo that includes a 92-95 mph fastball and plus curveball, he is able to frequently keep batters off balance. His 56.0 GB% not only led all Southern League pitchers, but would have ranked first in the Texas League and Eastern League as well. That ability to generate groundballs gives him a higher floor than his stuff would otherwise indicate. He turned 24 during the offseason and figures to open in the Pacific Coast League. Brown is firmly on the Brewers' radar for 2019, although they may break him in as a power reliever, a la Corbin Burnes in 2018.
