Brown has decided to retire. "Kevin didn't have me pursue any teams because he wanted to see how his health was," his agent, Scott Boras told the New York Times. "He decided after the painful process last year he was not going to play. His arm is still remarkably good, but it's about his back. He had to endure a lot to throw last year."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Kevin Brown.

2006

Brown's back kept him out of action for much of the second half of 2005, but that was a blessing, as it led to Aaron Small and Shawn Chacon joining the Yankees rotation. When he did take the mound, Brown was horrible. While some team will likely take a chance on him at a reduced rate in the spring, it won't be the Yankees, and at age 41 he's probably done.

2005

After his ALCS blowup, Brown is likely to land on another team come 2005, and clubhouse walls in the Bronx are relieved. Mr. So-Competitive-It's-Scary was OK in 2004, with a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, but he's only pitched a full season once in the past four years, and pitchers typically don't get more durable after they turn 40, as Brown will this March.

2004

Brown was able to remain healthy in 2003 and went back to dominating hitters. He was able to log over 200 innings for the first time since the 2000 season. The Dodgers traded Brown to the Yankees to get out from under his contract. If he stays healthy, a big if, he is someone who can anchor your fantasy staff. Three consequences to the trade could shape Brown's season: he'll no longer pitch half his games in an extreme pitcher's park; he'll likely get more run support from the Yankees than he did from the Dodgers; most importantly, as a groundball pitcher, the defensive range provided by Derek Jeter and Alfonso Soriano up the middle will be less than what Cesar Izturis and Alex Cora had behind him in 2003.

2003

This is not looking good. Brown went from being an elite pitcher in 2000 and extraordinarily healthy throughout his career to making just 19 starts in 2001 and then 10 starts in 2002. He'll be 38 on Opening Day and the $45 million he's owed over the next three years is looking pretty expensive.
