Unfortunately, we’re never lacking new topics to discuss when it comes to Domonic Brown. You can add a new injury to that list, as the Phillies top prospect injured his left knee in Thursday night’s Iron Pigs loss. It’s the same knee Brown injured earlier this season, causing him to miss an extended period of time. As Jeff Schuler of the Allentown Morning Call writes, that could be the case again.
Brown, 24, was hitting .295 with four homers since May 20 – a great step in the right direction. Things had been moving along so well for Brown that many were calling for him to take over in left field in Philadelphia. Now, another setback to a guy who can’t seem to catch many breaks.
Since it appears he will miss some time – although its anyone’s guess as to how long right now – it’s unlikely he would be a candidate to join the Phillies anytime soon.
Overall, Brown is hitting .266 with a .730 OPS.
