Domonic Brown went 0-for-4 on Saturday, leaving him with a .200/.300/.314 line in 35 at-bats this spring.
It's fun to dream about Brown following in the footsteps of Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion and turning his career around in Toronto, but it's not going to happen in April. The Jays want their fourth outfielder to play center, so Brown was going to have a tough time making the team even with a big spring. Sat, Mar 26, 2016 04:02:00 PM

Blue Jays signed OF Domonic Brown to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Brown elected to become a free agent last October after the Phillies outrighted him off their 40-man roster. He then spent four months trying to find a new team. The well-built corner outfielder showed great promise with Philadelphia in 2013, slashing .272/.324/.494 with 27 home runs and 83 RBI in 139 games, but it's been all downhill since then. Brown, now 28 years old, is doubtful to make a big impact with Toronto.

Domonic Brown has elected free agency.

The decision was a given after the Phillies removed him from their 40-man roster last week. Brown has hit only .233/.285/.349 across the last two seasons after making the All-Star team in 2013. He's certainly no given to get his career back on track, but Brown is still just 28 and someone will take a shot on him.

Phillies sent OF Domonic Brown outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Brown's eligible to be a free agent if he opts not to accept the assignment. In 189 at-bats during the 2015 campaign, he hit .228/.284/.349 with five homers and 25 RBI. A concussion in early September resulted in an early end to the season for the 28-year-old outfielder. Should he elect to become a free agent, he'll likely find a home soon enough despite the sketchy numbers.

Domonic Brown (concussion) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2015 season.

The 28-year-old hasn't played since September 2 due to post-concussion symptoms. He'll finish a rough 2015 season hitting .228/.284/.349 with five homers, 25 RBI and a 36/14 K/BB ratio in 189 at-bats.

Domonic Brown could be done for the season after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Brown suffered the injury when he flipped over an outfield side wall Wednesday. He'll have to follow Major League Baseball's concussion protocol before being cleared to action and it might be a long shot that we see him again this season. He's hit just .228/.284/.349 with five homers over 63 games with the Phillies this season.

Domonic Brown (concussion) has returned to Philadelphia to see a doctor.

Brown was feeling concussion-like symptoms after he flipped over an outfield wall early in Wednesday's game. He'll visit a doctor on Thursday, after which more should be known. It sure sounds like he'll make at least a short stay on the concussion disabled list.

Domonic Brown was removed from Wednesday's game due to concussion concerns.

Brown flipped over a wall in the second inning and stayed in the game briefly before being removed. A trip to the 7-day concussion disabled list could be in the cards for the 28-year-old.

Domonic Brown left Wednesday's game against the Mets with an undisclosed injury.

Brown flipped over a short outfield wall while chasing a ball in the second inning -- he missed, and Ruben Tejada ended up with a two-run inside-the-park homer -- and while he stayed in the game temporarily, he was removed to start the fourth inning. Cody Asche entered to play left field while Darnell Sweeney slid from left to right. The Phillies should shed some light on Brown's situation shortly.

Domonic Brown (illness) went 0-for-3 with a walk in his return to the Phillies starting lineup on Friday.

Brown had missed the previous couple of games due to stomach bug. While he has picked it up offensively in recent weeks, he's hitting just .234/.288/.354 with four homers and 22 RBI on the season.

Domonic Brown was scratched from the Phillies' lineup Tuesday due to illness.

It's poor timing, as Brown is finally heating up with four homers over his last 10 games. Jeff Francouer entered the lineup in right field in his place.

Domonic Brown went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and four total RBI in Thursday's 10-8 loss to the Dodgers.

Brown smacked a three-run home run off of Zack Greinke in the first inning, then burned the pitcher for an RBI single in the third inning. While he's hitting just .252/.296/.364 on the season, the 27-year-old outfielder has been swinging a hot bat of late, with three homers and 13 RBI in his last nine games.

Domonic Brown homered for the second consecutive game as the Phillies topped the Braves 9-3 on Friday.

Brown belted his first long ball of the season on Thursday and felt so good that he decided to repeat the effort on Friday night. It's the first time that he has homered in consecutive contests since early June 2013 when he clobbered 11 in a span of 15 ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI and also swiped his third base of the season.
