Phillies considering moving Domonic Brown back to right field

Following Wednesday’s trade that sent outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Reds, the Phillies are considering moving Domonic Brown from left to right field. CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that the team has spoken to Brown about making the move and Brown has been preparing for the possibility during the off-season.

Brown, 27, made his way through the Phillies’ minor league system primarily as a right fielder. He took over in left field while the Phillies had Hunter Pence (and later, Byrd) in right. Defensively, the former top prospect has always looked more comfortable in right than in left.

Brown will be looking to rebound from a disappointing 2014 season in which he failed to live up to expectations, batting .235/.285/.349 with 10 home runs and 63 RBI in 512 plate appearances.

The Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) and Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners) played a wild one on Monday. The game featured 33 runs on 39 hits and 16 walks with 10 homers. Four of those homers were hit by Yasmany Tomás. Matt Szczur hit for the cycle while Kevin Cron knocked in six runs and hit a pair of homers, giving him 21 on the season. Reno won 25-8, by the way.
