Corey Brown has found a new home once again after being traded from the Washington Nationals to the Oakland Athletics for cash, only to be released. He didn’t stay off the market long and was picked up by a team who has the right talent to win the World Series for the second year in a row.
According to Gordon Edes on Twitter, the Boston Red Sox and Corey Brown were able to agree on a minor league contract. The deal does include an invitation to Spring Training, which kicks off at the very end of the month.

Brown hit .254/.326/.473 across the line with 19 long balls and 56 RBI’s. Hopefully he can stay with the Red Sox for longer than a month. If he cracks the Major League roster, he could pick up some playing team anywhere in the outfield when needed.
