Domonic Brown out indefinitely with Achilles’ tendon injury

3 Comments

Domonic Brown hasn’t played since September 1 because of an Achilles’ tendon injury and Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the Phillies outfielder has been diagnosed with tendinitis.

Brown told Zolecki that he won’t be back in the lineup for “at least a week” and it sounds like his returning this season could be in some doubt.

Brown has been one of the few bright spots for the Phillies this season, as the former top prospect established himself as a long-term building block after initially struggling in the majors. He’s hit .274 with 27 homers and an .833 OPS in 123 games at age 25, making his first All-Star team and ranking third among NL hitters in homers.
