Dusty Brown has signed with the Texas Rangers. He hit well while with the Indianapolis Indians this season and Brown was promoted to Pittsburgh during the 2011 catcher injury crisis.
Brown was brought up to back up Chris Snyder after Ryan Doumit went down in late May. Michael McKenry was acquired on June 12 after Chris Snyder was hurt.
The McKenry lovefest ensued which left only two starts for Brown from June 12 until June 25 when Eric Fryer was promoted and became the number two catcher.
Good luck Dusty. We will always remember the caption to Brown’s picture above that White Angus won a contest with this March: Tim Lincecum, circa 2016, right after his third Tommy John surgery.
