Phillies activate, option Dominic Brown to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) The Phillies activated outfielder Domonic Brown from the disabled list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the team announced.

Brown did not report to Lehigh Valley Tuesday after the transaction was announced, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The outfielder has 72 hours to report to the team after being optioned Tuesday.

Brown opened the season on the disabled list due to an Achilles injury. He struggled during his rehab assignment, hitting .189/.290/.283 with one home run in 53 at-bats between high Class A Clearwater and Lehigh Valley, leading to the team sending him down to the minors at the end of his rehab assignment to continue to work on finding his offense.

Manager Ryne Sandberg indicated that there's "no timetable" for Brown's return, which will come "when he shows he's ready to make an impact for us," the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Brown hit .235/.285/.349 with 10 home runs, 63 RBI and seven stolen bases in 473 at-bats in 2014.


OF Domonic Brown, Phillies not on same page regarding return


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/27/2015) Although Domonic Brown told reporters that he'll return to the Phillies from the disabled list on Wednesday, manager Ryne Sandberg said he doesn't know if the outfielder is ready to come back and added that no official decision has been made, per MLB.com. 

The Phillies must activate Brown, who's been on a rehab assignment (tendinitis in left Achilles), Wednesday from the disabled list and either send him to the big club or keep him in the minors.

Brown is batting .129 (4-for-31) with one double, two RBI and six strikeouts in eight games on his Triple-A rehab assignment.

 “Maybe it’s just not enough at-bats,” Sandberg said about Brown’s struggles during his rehab stint in Triple-A. “He’s had some fly ball outs. He just hasn’t connected and hasn’t hit for average, which you’d like to see.”

(4/25/2015) Although he told reporters he feels "outstanding," Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown still has one last hurdle to overcome in recovery from an inflamed Achilles that landed him on the disabled list.

"Some at-bats you feel locked in and other at-bats you feel like garbage," Brown said, per LehighValleyLive.com. "That's the toughest thing right now, getting your timing."

Brown moved his minor-league rehab assignment from Class A Clearwater to Triple-A Lehigh Valley last week, and is hitting .195 (8 for 41) with one home run and four RBI in 12 rehab games. He is anticipating a return from the disabled list next week.

Brown was hitting .200 at Class A at the start of his rehab assigment.

"It's the right thing to do physically and also with regards to his preparedness," Amaro said, per the Inquirer.

Phillies OF Domonic Brown takes BP, remains unsure for opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown tested his sore Achilles on Friday with a round of batting practice. It was his first batting practice since suffering the injury last week. Brown is expected to run the bases Saturday, along with batting practice. If he clears those hurdles, he'll be inserted into minor-league games for extra at-bats, per the News Journal.

Brown believes he'll be ready for Opening Day.

"I've been doing a lot of conditioning, but that stop and start, that’s going to be the big test," Brown said. "Just been running kind of long distances and I sprinted [Friday] and it felt good.

"I'm excited because I was scared last week, I'm not going to lie to you."

However, manager Ryne Sandberg revealed that Opening Day "could be unlikely" for Brown, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.


Phillies' Brown (Achilles): Recovery 'moving in the right direction'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown said Tuesday he is "moving in the right direction" in his recovery from Achilles tendinitis, per The Philadelphia Daily News. Brown was held out of the lineup for a fifth straight day Tuesday, but he played catch and received treatment.

"I'm feeling better -- much better," Brown said. "I'm going to start running here in the next couple days. I think the time off of not doing anything calmed it down a lot. I'm definitely feeling much better. I'm not even going to lie to you guys, I was a little nervous there before the MRI. To see the progression in the last three or four days, it's been much better. So hopefully I can be back on the field in another week or so, hopefully."

Still, Brown is unsure if he will be ready in time for Opening Day (April 6).

"I haven't even looked at it like that yet," Brown said of his Opening Day availability. "I'm just excited on the progression, really. Hopefully I can be ready for Opening Day. That's the goal as of right now. But we'll see what happens. I'm just excited it wasn't a tear. We're moving in the right direction."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

In order to do that, Brown has been working with former Phillies third baseman Mike Schmidt during camp. Schmidt is hoping to get Brown to cut down on his uppercut swing, but he's also hoping to help the outfielder mentally. "I hope to get [Brown] thinking positive again," Schmidt said. Schmidt mentioned that he would love to see Brown take home the comeback player of the year award when the season ends.

Brown admits his swing can lead to issues when he's off, but feels confident Schmidt can get him back on the right track. "When it's right, it's right. But when it's not, you need a guy who has that nice downhill swing to get you back right, and Mike Schmidt has that."

Domonic Brown: All I can do is prepare every day to be a Phillie


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown is headed back to right field now that Marlon Byrd is with the Reds. Brown is coming off a very disappointing year offensively in 2014, but he's not ready to speculate on whether a move back to right field will help improve his comfort level in the field and at the plate.

“I’m not even getting into it,” he said, per MLB.com. “Wherever I’m at, I’m going to have fun playing, wherever I am on the baseball field. Is it going to get me more comfortable at the plate? I really don’t know. I have a really different mindset this year and that’s going out and having a lot of fun. I know what my ability (is). I’m going to do what I’m (capable of doing).”

Brown could be in a make-or-break year with the Phillies, but he's not trying to focus on what the future might bring.

“I really don’t even put that in my mind,” Brown said about his future in Philadelphia. “We’ll see what happens. That’s part of the business as well. All I can do is prepare myself every day to be a Philadelphia Phillie until I get traded.”

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Wednesday outfielder Domonic Brown is ready for a fresh start in 2015 after struggling offensively in 2014, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“It’s a big year for Domonic Brown to see if he’s one of the pieces of the puzzle going forward,” Sandberg said. “He can help us a lot with the ability that he has. If he can get hot and put together a good, solid year, he can be a big part of the lineup.”

Brown is also moving to right field this spring after playing the last few seasons in left field.

“I think he matured quite a bit over the last couple of years,” Sandberg said. “And where he’s at with his age and everything, for him to step up and do a good job in right field. I think he has the arm out there and with the potential of his bat, he can do a good job for us.”
