Colorado Rockies Claim Andrew Brown Off Waivers From St. Louis Cardinals

In a minor move, the Colorado Rockies plucked infielder/outfielder Andrew Brown off waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, Root Sports' Alanna Rizzo reports. He has been added to the Rockies' 40-man roster.

Brown was the Cardinals' 18th round draft choice out of Nebraska in the 2007 MLB Draft. The 27-year-old has been a slowly climbed up the minor league levels since he started in the New York-Penn League in the summer of 2007. However, at 27 years old his days as a true prospect are over. He is likely a AAAA-player who will play for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox in 2012--if the Rockies don't wind up taking him off the 40-man roster at some point over the next few months.

Brown did reach the majors with the Cardinals in 2011. He went 4-for-22 with a double and three RBI over 11 games.
