Domonic Brown has had an Achilles’ tendon injury “for a couple weeks”


Phillies right fielder Domonic Brown left Thursday’s game with soreness in his Achilles’ tendon and afterward revealed that the injury has been bothering him for about two weeks.

They’re saying tendinitis. … 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.

It’s particularly frustrating for Brown because he’s trying to bounce back following a very rough 2014 that saw his OPS drop nearly 200 points compared to his All-Star campaign of 2013. He’s scheduled to undergo further testing on the injury.
