Every time the Philadelphia Phillies have an off day, it seems like there is a new update on injured outfielder Domonic Brown. Last Thursday, Phillies 101 reported that Brown would be shut down from all baseball activities for at least a week. Just four days later, it has now been confirmed by the team that Brown will resume baseball activities on Tuesday.
Brown, who has been suffering from tendonitis in his Achilles heel for a few weeks now, was originally shut down just four days ago. On Monday, the team announced that Brown will be able to resume baseball activities and workouts as early as Tuesday. The Phillies are not in any huge rush to have Brown back, as they are way out of contention in the National League playoff race, but Brown is itching to come back:
“I’m getting tired of just sitting here and not doing anything, to be honest. It’s tough watching our games. ”
Brown has not played since September 1st, and has not started a game since the 30th of August. Brown holds a .274 average to go with 27 home runs and 81 RBI through 123 games. Despite injuries here and there, this has been a breakout season for the 26 year old outfielder who had struggled with consistency at the big-league level before this season. Brown is not expected to return to game action for the upcoming series with the San Diego Padres.
The Phillies and Padres begin their series tomorrow night at 7:05 from Citizens Bank Park. Roy Halladay was supposed to start Tuesday’s game, but his start has been pushed back to Wednesday because he is suffering from an illness. The official pitching matchups for the series with the Padres are as follows:
Tuesday: RHP Andrew Cashner (8-8, 3.45 ERA) vs. RHP Tyler Cloyd (2-3, 3.57 ERA)
Wednesday: LHP Eric Stults (8-13, 4.07 ERA) vs. RHP Roy Halladay (3-4, 7.19 ERA)
Thursday: RHP Tyson Ross (3-7, 2.79 ERA) vs. LHP Cliff Lee (12-6, 3.01 ERA)
