Domonic Brown is a member of the Phillies’ starting lineup for the first time since August 30 on Sunday afternoon against the Nationals

Brown, who was hobbled for over two weeks by discomfort in his right Achilles tendon, is starting in left field and batting cleanup as Philadelphia tries to play the role of spoiler in the nation’s capital.

Angels sign Chris Young to one-year deal

The Angels went on a Chris binge yesterday. In addition to signing Chris Carter to a minor league deal they signed Chris Young — the outfielder Chris Young, not the pitcher Chris Young — to a one-year contract. Young will make $2 million with incentives that could make the pact more valuable.

Young, 34, hit .235/.322/.387 with seven home runs in a part-time role last season with the Red Sox. He’s historically been a plus defender and has handled all three outfield positions in the past, but he’s really a corner guy/platoon DH these days. Not that the Angels need a center fielder. Rumor has it that they have a pretty decent one.
