Brown is awarded MiLBY for being Class-A's best hitter.

Top Giants prospect Gary Brown was honored Thursday with the MiLBY for Best Class A Advanced Hitter.

The San Jose Giant’s leadoff man finished among the Cal League’s top three leaders in numerous offensive categories, including batting (.336), runs (115), hits (188), triples (13), total bases (290) and stolen bases (53).

Brown is also a stud with the glove, committing just three errors in 273 chances. And he nailed 16 runners.

Other Giants minor leaguers who were nominated for MiLBYs, but did not win include Eric Surkamp, who lost out to Brad Peacock (Nationals) for Best Double-A Starter; Joe Panik, who lost out to Eddie Rosario (Twins) for Best Hitter for Class-A Short Season; and Chris Heston, who lost out to Darin Gorski (Mets) for Best Class-A Advanced Starter of 2011.

Brown told MLB.com’s Andrew Pentis that he was worried about being traded by the Giants before Zack Wheeler was dealt to the Mets for Carlos Beltran.

“A lot of people were mentioning things on my Twitter, and I just ignored it,” Brown told Pentis. “Until the day when Zack got traded, he and I were talking earlier that morning. He had mentioned that he had heard something that I was gone. It was just until that last moment that I was nervous.”

Brown need not worry about his future. San Francisco has big plans for the 23-year old Fullerton grad. Fred Stanley, the Giants director of player development, said it best: “He’ll move through our system quickly.”
