Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday for the ninth straight game.
The first handful of absences were due to strep throat, but Brown has remained out of the lineup the last few days even after being given a clean bill of health. Grady Sizemore sports a nice .333/.372/.444 batting line since joining the Phillies and the club appears to be ready to stick with him in left field for now even though he's not part of their long-term plans. Brown has batted just .229/.279/.336 in 2014 after making the All-Star team in 2013. Aug 8 - 2:28 PM

Domonic Brown (illness) is available to pinch-hit Tuesday.

Brown is missing a sixth straight start due to strep throat, but he's feeling better and should be back in the lineup soon. "All the stuff in the throat is pretty much gone, little bit of body aching, that's really about it," Brown said.

Domonic Brown remains out of the Phillies' lineup with strep throat.

This is his second bout with the illness in the past month. He's sat out four straight games and won't play Sunday, either. Brown has been amongst the least valuable players in the National League this year, but hopefully he can return in the next few days, because he was heating up prior to falling ill. Brown batted .268 with a .715 OPS in July.

Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday because he's ill.

It helps to explain why he's sat out three straight games. Grady Sizemore is also playing well, making it easy to keep him in there. Brown should be ready to play sometime over the weekend.
Aug 1 - 5:00 PM

Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday for the third straight game.

Brown is healthy, so this is a benching. The Phillies have been facing a righty in two of those games (including Friday), so it's not an encouraging development for the 26-year-old. Grady Sizemore is in left field for the third straight game.

Domonic Brown homered and drove home three runs, powering the Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Brown delivered an RBI groundout in the first inning, then really broke things open with a two-run shot off Evan Marshall in the seventh. It has been a very disappointing season to this point for Brown, who is slashing just .231/.281/.341 with seven homers and 49 RBI.

Domonic Brown (illness) fouled out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

Brown was held out of the Phillies' lineup for the second consecutive game due to a minor illness. He should be 100 percent when Philly resumes play on Friday. The 26-year-old left fielder batted just .227/.279/.329 with six home runs in a highly disappointing first half.
Jul 14 - 3:32 AM

Domonic Brown was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Nationals with an illness.

It's not clear whether he'll be able to return Sunday for the Phillies' final game before the All-Star break. Brown is batting just .225/.277/.328 with six home runs and 46 RBI in 90 games this season.
Jul 12 - 4:21 PM

Phillies activated OF Domonic Brown from the paternity leave list.

Brown missed only one game in order to be there for the birth of his child. He's hitting just .225/.277/.323 with five homers and 39 RBI over 81 games this season for the Phils.
Jul 4 - 12:12 PM

Domonic Brown will be activated from the paternity leave list prior to Friday's game.

He'll be away for a few days. Aaron Altherr has replaced Brown on the active roster.
Jul 2 - 11:50 AM

Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' starting lineup on Thursday evening against the Marlins.

John Mayberry will start in left field. Brown is batting just .217/.271/.322 in 75 games played this season.
Jun 26 - 2:29 PM

Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' lineup Tuesday and manager Ryne Sandberg said that the outfielder needs "a little mental break."

"Maybe a little mental break and start over," Sandberg said. "Maybe something will click and he’ll get to where he was." Brown got in some extra work in the batting cage Tuesday, trying to level out a swing that Sandberg feels has become too upper-cutting. The skipper indicated that Brown might sit out additional games, though he didn't reveal how long the break would be. "Just day to day," he said. "What I feel like."

Domonic Brown homered and drove in four runs Friday against the Mets.

Brown launched a three-run homer against Rafael Montero in the fourth inning and tied the game with an RBI groundout one inning later. The game would remain tied until the Phillies won it in the 14th inning. Brown has failed to build off his encouraging 2013 so far, as he's batting just .201/.258/.313 through 50 games.
May 31 - 1:12 AM

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Thursday that the team is not considering optioning Domonic Brown to Triple-A "at this stage."

"We have to get Dom right here before we start thinking about that stuff," Amaro added. With a .200/.258/.297 batting line through his first 190 plate appearances this season, Brown has been one of the least productive regulars in the game. That said, he's earned a long leash after last year's breakout campaign. Brown hit 18 homers between May and June last season, so he's certainly capable of getting red-hot and turning his year around.
