Domonic Brown (heel) went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Clearwater on Thursday.

Brown is in the process of recovering from tendinitis in his left Achilles and is expected to be ready to rejoin the Phillies in the middle of next week. It'd be nice to see him get the bat going a bit in the minor leagues before jumping right into the big league lineup though.

Apr 9 - 1:24 PM

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said that Domonic Brown (Achilles) would begin the season on the DL.

Brown was diagnosed with tendinitis of the left Achilles a little over a week ago and has been making slow progress toward recovery. This leaves the team in a state of flux, as their current outfield options to replace Brown are the likes of Jeff Francoeur and Darin Ruf. Brown's timetable for return has still not been set.
Mar 31 - 12:51 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday that it "could be unlikely" Domonic Brown (Achilles) is ready for Opening Day.

Sandberg said the outfielder is coming along "slowly" in his recovery from left Achilles tendinitis, an ailment he was diagnosed with a week ago. Brown had been hoping to return to game action around the middle of next week, but it's sounding like that won't happen. The Phillies figure to go with Darin Ruf or maybe Jeff Francoeur in right field on Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 3:25 PM

Domonic Brown (Achilles) hopes to get back in game action in a week or so.

Brown has been dealing with soreness in his left Achilles for most of the spring and an MRI last Friday showed moderate tendinitis. He expects to start running again in the next couple of days, but obviously he's going to be cutting it close to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 11:04 AM

Domonic Brown has been diagnosed with moderate tendinitis after his MRI revealed no structural damage to his left Achilles.

He'll remain sidelined for the next few days, and it could be up to a week before he returns to game action, but he appears to have avoided a significant injury scare. At this stage, his availability for Opening Day is in question.
Mar 20 - 7:42 PM

Domonic Brown (Achilles) will undergo an MRI on Friday.

Brown has dealt with soreness in his left Achilles for a couple weeks and was finally forced from a game Thursday when it became too much. The Phillies think he's dealing with tendinitis, but they decided to send him for an exam to make sure it's not something worse. An update on Brown's status should be available later Friday.
Mar 20 - 12:26 PM

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Friday that he's unsure whether Domonic Brown (Achilles) needs an MRI.

Brown is dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles, an ailment he's battled for a couple weeks before it finally forced him from a game on Thursday. It doesn't sound like a major setback at this point, but we'll just have to see how the outfielder recovers.
Mar 20 - 9:09 AM

Domonic Brown said after leaving Thursday's game that he's been told he's dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles.

Brown revealed that he's dealt with soreness for the past two weeks. He'll be re-evaluated on Friday before more is known about his status. "I want to be in there, spring training or not," Brown said. "I feel pretty good at the plate. I don’t want to miss any time, but this is part of the game, also. I’m definitely frustrated for sure. It seemed like we were going in the right direction, it was getting a little bit better. As soon as Chase Headley hit the home run (in the second inning), I took off and started feeling it then. Once I got to the on-deck circle … I could definitely feel it. Not pulling but grabbing a little bit."
Mar 19 - 9:12 PM

Domonic Brown exited Thursday's game against the Yankees with Achilles soreness.

He didn't look to suffer any obvious injury, so we'll have to wait on an update from the Phillies to see what happened. Brown struck out in both plate appearances before leaving. The 27-year-old outfielder is looking to bounce back in 2015 after a disappointing 2014 campaign.
Mar 19 - 8:05 PM

Domonic Brown was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Orioles due to dehydration.

Brown should be back at it Tuesday. The 27-year-old outfielder is 7-for-27 (.259) with only one extra-base hit in 10 games so far in the Grapefruit League.
Mar 16 - 1:36 PM

Phillies and OF Domonic Brown avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Brown is coming off a disappointing 2014 campaign that saw him bat just .235/.285/.349 with 10 homers.
Jan 16 - 2:43 PM

Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Brown hadn't started since last Thursday, when he suffered a sprained right hand. It shouldn't be an issue for him anymore during the final week.
