Brazell Signs With Kansas City

First baseman Craig Brazell, who came to the Dodgers via free agency, departed in the same fashion, signing a contract with Kansas City.

Brazell, who had made the big leagues with the New York Mets at one time, signed with the Dodgers just before this past season.

Playing with Jacksonville, he led the Southern League in runs batted in with 91 while hitting 21 home runs.

But he averaged only .247 so was not called up to the 40-man roster and allowed to depart via minor league free agency.

The departure of the 26-year-old means that both Jacksonville first basemen have now left as A.J. Zapp also signed elsewhere.

If James Loney makes it to the Dodgers next season, it means the organization will be deplete of first basemen with any experience above the A level.
