Brown returned to Pawtucket as Smoltz returns to major leagues

As expected, with the return of John Smoltz to the major leagues comes the end of Dusty Brown's first stint with Boston. Brown, who was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket when Daisuke Matsuzaka was placed on the disabled list on June 21, appeared in 1 game for Boston as a defensive replacement and caught 1.0 inning. The 27-year-old righthanded batter had been hitting .239/.347/.331 with 2 home runs and 12 RBI in 163 at-bats for Pawtucket at the time of his major league summons. A thirty-fifth-round draft choice by Boston in 2000, Brown owns career .260/.343/.390 numbers with 40 home runs and 287 RBI in 2039 minor league at-bats spanning 9 seasons.
