Nationals Trade Corey Brown Back To Athletics For Cash Considerations

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Three years after the Washington Nationals acquired outfielder Corey Brown from the Oakland A's, they've apparently sent him back to the team that drafted the now-28-year-old Brown. According to the Nats, they received cash considerations in return...

The revolving door between the Washington Nationals and Oakland A's is spinning once again, for the eighth time in the last three years. The Nationals designated Corey Brown for assignment last week when they officially announced the signing of free agent outfielder Nate McLouth. The Nats announced a trade today that sends Brown, an '07 Athletics' 1st Round pick, back to Oakland three years after Washington acquired the left-handed hitting and throwing 28-year-old outfielder along with right-handed reliever Henry Rodriguez in the December 2010 trade that sent outfielder Josh Willingham to the A's:

Brown played just 36 games in the majors in the Nationals' organization over the last three seasons, putting up a combined .175/.250/.400 line with three doubles and two home runs in 45 plate appearances. The outfielder had a .235/.326/.402 line in his first season in the Nats' system in 2011 and he put together a strong .285/.365/.523, 22 double, nine triple, 25 HR campaign at Triple-A Syracuse in 2012. Brown put up a .254/.326/.473 line in the minors in 2013, hitting 26 doubles and 19 HRs in 107 games and 438 plate appearances.

The Nationals will get cash considerations from the A's for sending Brown back to the team that drafted him out of Oklahoma State University. The Nats announced the trade officially shortly after it was reported by the sources cited above:

The A's reportedly think there's a good chance Brown, who's out of options, sticks in the outfield in the majors:
