Domonic Brown's time is now
Brown, Brandon Allen, Brandon Belt and more should all get chances in 2011
A week ago, we looked at ten players in the American League who are going to (likely) trend up (i.e. the big leagues) or down (i.e. longer stays in the minors) based on what's been happening in free agency.

Brandon Allen, 1B
The snakes are looking for another solution here, but Allen isn't the worst option. In 160 Triple-A games, he's gone yard 38 times and walked 103 times. His batting average will be low, but the power and patience should make up for it.
For Kevin Goldstein's full breakdown, you need to be an ESPN Insider.
