Aaron Lee Brooks (born April 27, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He has pitched in MLB for the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics and Chicago Cubs.
Brooks attended Cajon High School in San Bernardino, California, and Cal State San Bernardino, where he played college baseball for the Cal State San Bernardino Coyotes.
Through the 2013 season, Brooks had issued only 1.3 walks per nine innings pitched in 393 1⁄3 total innings. The Royals invited Brooks to spring training in 2014. They assigned him to the Omaha Storm Chasers of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League at the start of the 2014 season. Before he could pitch for Omaha, the Royals promoted Brooks to the major leagues on April 5, 2014. He was optioned back to Omaha on April 8 without appearing in a game. He made his MLB debut on May 3.
On July 28, 2015, Brooks and teammate Sean Manaea were traded to the Oakland Athletics for Ben Zobrist.
On February 25, 2016, Brooks was traded to the Chicago Cubs for outfielder Chris Coghlan. He was designated for assignment by the Cubs, never playing a single game for the team, on August 22, 2017. The next day, he was claimed off waivers by the Milwaukee Brewers.
