Domonic Brown Out Of Lineup with Concussion Symptoms

The Phillies continue to receive bad news.

Domonic Brown is out of the lineup with concussion-like symptoms. According to Todd Zolecki of, Brown is being tested for a concussion today, and could return Friday if the test goes well. If not, he’ll be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list at the very least.

This is just the second time that Brown is out of the lineup in 101 games this season.  Brown likely suffered the injury in last night’s game after falling hard when diving for a ball.  He complained of dizziness after the dive; however claims to feel much better today.

This is extremely poor timing for the Phillies, who are in desperate need of a run.  Now, they are without one of their best players, making a possible run tougher. If Brown is out a significant period of time, it could be safe to say that the Phillies will be sellers at the trade deadline.

    Well, considering the key injuries to Halladay, Adams, Howard, Revere and now Brown, I’ll accept your line of reasoning for the “sellers” comment.

    If good baseball fortune had been bestowed on our Phillies this season without all the injuries, they not only would be good but also legitmate contenders in a division lacking a clear cut leader as the struggles of preseason favorites, Washington and Atlanta continues (Phillies actually have a better record than the Nats).
