Royals and Brown Reach Agreement

The Royals and Emil Brown avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract on Tuesday that is believed to be in the range of $3.4 million. Brown has proven that he can drive in runs and he can play either left or right field, but I'm still not sure where he fits in the big scheme of things given that Reggie Sanders will start in right field and, in all likelihood, Mark Teahen will start in left.

But who knows how things will shake out during Spring Training? Alex Gordon might not be ready yet to take over third, which would leave Teahen there. Or somebody could get injured. And the odd man out in the outfield would fit nicely into the DH spot if Sweeney goes down.
