Phillies activated OF Domonic Brown from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Brown is now recovered from left Achilles tendinitis, but he batted just .189 (10-for-53) with one home run and a .573 OPS over 15 games between High-A Clearwater and Triple-A Lehigh Valley during his minor league rehab assignment. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg hinted at the possibility of him staying in Triple-A on Monday, so this decision doesn't come as a big surprise, but it shows how far he's fallen in the organization's eyes. Jeff Francoeur and Grady Sizemore will continue to see playing time in the Phillies' outfield for now. Apr 28 - 1:34 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

"I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision.

Domonic Brown (Achilles) said Friday that he feels "outstanding" health wise as he nears his return to the Phillies next week.

Brown has been on an extended minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he has gone 3-for-24 with three walks and five strikeouts. The Phillies wanted him to get as many at-bats as possible to get his timing back before rejoining the big league club. His last game with the Iron Pigs should be Sunday or Monday.
Apr 25 - 8:55 AM

Domonic Brown (Achilles) is expected to use his full 20-day allotment during his rehab assignment.

Brown hasn't had issues with his left Achilles, but he's not hitting much so the Phillies plan to leave him at Triple-A Lehigh Valley in hopes that he figures things out. "It's kind of up to him when he finds his stride to get hot with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I think that would be important for him." Brown's 20th rehab day is next Tuesday.
Apr 21 - 8:31 PM

Domonic Brown (heel) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Brown, who began the season on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left Achilles, went 4-for-14 (.286) with a home run over five games with High-A Clearwater. It's unclear how many games he'll play in Triple-A before being activated. The Phillies have been relying on a combination of Jeff Francoeur and Grady Sizemore in right field during his absence.
Apr 16 - 5:25 PM

Domonic Brown (heel) played in his fifth rehab game Wednesday with High-A Clearwater.

Brown will soon jump to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and he should be back in the major leagues by early next week. He is recovering from tendinitis in his left Achilles. Jeff Francoeur and Grady Sizemore have been splitting the playing time in right field for the Phillies, and Francoeur even batted cleanup on Wednesday night against the Mets.
Apr 16 - 9:39 AM

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 - 9:25 PM

Domonic Brown (heel) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday night.

Brown opened the season on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left Achilles. He's trending in the right direction now and should be ready to join the Phillies' active roster sometime early next week. His rehab assignment will start at High-A Clearwater and probably last three or four games.
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."
