This is a relatively small deal, but the Tigers got Brooks Brown from the Diamondbacks for James Skelton. The catcher was lost in the Rule 5 draft but the Diamondbacks couldn’t find room for him so they worked out a deal to keep him.
Brown is a fringe prospect starting pitcher and despite going 6-15, he played in the Southern League All Star game for Double A Mobile. He also had a fair showing at the Arizona Fall League with 19 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings. Brown was subsequently sent to Erie so he’ll repeat Double A at least to start the season.
