The Phillies option Domonic Brown to Triple-A

29 Comments

Domonic Brown has been down in Triple-A Lehigh Valley on an injury rehab assignment. He has hit poorly on his assignment, but was eligible to come off the assignment today. Brown told reporters that he expected to be back in Philly when he did. Ryne Sandberg didn’t like it too much.

But whether it was based on his performance or on his comments, know that he will not be heading to Philadelphia. The Phillies just activated him and then optioned him to Triple-A.

Brown, who some people still talk about as if he’s some rising prospect for some reason, is 27-years-old and has 1,544 major league plate appearances. He was an All-Star who hit 27 homers in 2013, but regressed greatly last year and began this year on the DL with an achilles injury.

Now he’s in the minors again. While guys like Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur take hacks in Philly.
