It was reported Thursday that Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown will not participate in any type of baseball activities for at least a week. Brown has missed the past five games with an Achilles injury that has been nagging him for a couple of weeks. Earlier this week, Brown was cleared to play with just inflammation in his heel, but the team and Brown himself has decided to be cautious about the injury.
At the present time, it doesn’t look like Brown will end up on the disabled list, but this is unconfirmed. With the Phillies not contending for any type of playoff berth, currently sitting 14 games under the .500 mark, it only makes sense to keep Brown on the bench for now. Domonic is hitting .274 with 27 home runs and 81 RBI this season.
The Phillies will enjoy their first off day in weeks on Thursday, and will be right back to action Friday night at home against the NL East leading Atlanta Braves. The Braves are looking to wrap up the division in the next couple weeks, and are currently without Jason Heyward, Brandon Beachy, Tim Hudson, Jonny Venters, Eric O’Flaherty, and others. The pitching matchups for this weekend are as follows:
Friday: LHP Mike Minor (13-5, 3.08) vs. LHP Cliff Lee (11-6, 3.09)
Saturday: LHP Alex Wood (3-3, 3.15) vs. RHP Kyle Kendrick (10-12, 4.51)
Sunday: LHP Paul Maholm (10-10, 4.41) vs, LHP Cole Hamels (6-13, 3.50)
