Drafted in the 4th round (124th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2005 (signed for $255,000)
Undrafted in 2002 out of a California high school, Brown has improved at Arizona each season and is now a solid bet to be drafted in the first five rounds, possibly even the top three. Scouts have compared his style, bat and career path to former Angels first baseman Wally Joyner, who went undrafted out of high school and became a third-round pick in 1985 after a productive career at Brigham Young. Brown has a similarly aggressive approach at the plate and a powerful lefthanded bat. He led the Wildcats in home runs a year ago with 13, was the No. 3 hitter in the Cape Cod League last summer with a .318 average and led the Pacific-10 Conference in RBIs this season with 72, while hitting .342 with 11 homers. He's not athletic, but has made significant strides at first base and is a solid defender.
