Domonic Brown (hand) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

Brown was left out of the starting lineup for a third straight game due to a right hand injury and will probably remain limited over the final week of the regular season. It's been a hugely disappointing summer for the 27-year-old outfielder, who's batting .236/.287/.355 with only 10 home runs in 138 games.

Domonic Brown was a late scratch to the Phillies starting lineup on Friday due to a sprained right hand.

He should be considered day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Phillies take things extremely cautiously with him down the stretch. The 27-year-old is hitting a disappointing .237/.288/.356 on the season with 10 homers and 61 RBI.
Sep 20 - 8:50 AM

Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Phillies' win over the Padres on Wednesday.

It's been a long, lonely, treacherous season for the 2013 revelation. But he just finished off a solid series at Petco, going 4-for-11 (.363) with a homer and a steal. Hey, his owners will take whatever they can get at this point. Brown, slashing .234/.286/.353, is very likely playing out the string on his Phillies' career. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported earlier this month that the Phillies will look to trade Brown this winter.

Domonic Brown (shoulder) returned to action on Friday, going 2-for-4 in an extra-inning victory over the Marlins.

Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder contusion sustained after diving for a ball in the outfield, then sat out Thursday's contest as a precautionary measure. After a breakout 2013 season, the 2014 campaign hasn't been as kind to the 27-year-old outfielder as he's slashing just .233/.285/.349 with nine homers and 59 RBI.

Domonic Brown (shoulder) is available to pinch-hit Thursday.

Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder injury, but he's fine. He probably could have started Thursday but was slated to come off the bench, anyway, with the Phillies facing lefty Francisco Liriano. "He's available. He got a little stinger last night in his shoulder area that he initially felt. It tightened up a little bit as we went along but the bigger issue out there was he just got the wind knocked out of him," manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Domonic Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder contusion.

Brown dove for a ball in left field in the fifth inning but stayed in the game at the time. He was later pinch-hit for by Darin Ruf. The Phillies should update his status after the game, but it's likely a day-to-day situation for now.

Domonic Brown was removed in the sixth inning of Wednesday's game against the Pirates after injuring himself diving for a ball.

Brown laid out for a ball in left field in the fifth inning and stayed down briefly before staying in the game. He played another inning before being pinch-hit for in the bottom of the sixth inning. Darin Ruf pinch-hit for him and replaced him in left.
Sep 10 - 9:25 PM

Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the Phillies "will look to trade" Domonic Brown this winter "for a similar change-of-scenery-type player."

The news doesn't come as a surprise. After making the All-Star team in 2013, Brown has tumbled to a .234/.284/.347 batting line with just eight homers this season and has frustrated with his defense. He's also arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. That said, he just turned 27 on Wednesday and has upside that will be attractive to other teams. The Phillies won't have trouble finding a taker if they're indeed motivated to deal him.
Sep 5 - 9:49 AM

Domonic Brown went 4-for-5 with a home run in the Phillies' loss to the Mets on Sunday.

It was the most productive game for Brown in a long time, but the Phillies couldn't overcome a poor start by A.J. Burnett. Brown is batting just .235/.285/.350 with eight homers and 58 RBI in 123 total games this year.
Aug 31 - 4:30 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 8:01 PM

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.
Aug 2 - 4:20 PM

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.
