Phillies Promote Domonic Brown

Domonic Brown, one of the best prospects in the minors, was recalled today as Shane Victorino hit the disabled list, reports CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury.  The 22-year-old outfielder raked at Double and Triple A this year.

As multiple reporters wrote earlier, the Victorino injury probably closes the door on a Jayson Werth trade.

    The real question is who will play center while Shane is out. If the Phils go with an outfield of Dom, Werth, and Ibanez, who plays center there? Personally, I’d love to see Dom, Werth, & Francisco, with Francisco playing CF.

      Werth will play CF

    • theydizneyboy 5 years ago

      It will be Ibanez, Werth, Brown– Francisco will get a start in left every 3-4 games.

    • seriously with Francisco over Ibanez? Have you seen what Raul has been doing since the break? it will be (left to right) Ibanez, Werth, Brown

        What he’s been doing is getting platooned. Check it.

    Most excited I’ve been to see a prospect come up since Hamels!! Nice end to his short AAA stint last night with a 2 run triple! Go get em DOM!!!

    While Shane being hurt is not a good thing, the phils being boxed in to keep werth is. Hopefully Oswalt would allow for some kind of reconfiguration of his money so they can work the cap out and they can make another push for the WS.

  5. just saw him play at LV on Sunday…not a Phils fan, but he looks legit.

    if its ibanez, werth, brown – werth plays center….if its brown, francisco, werth – francisco plays center.

    Yes what a phillies fan has been waiting for.

    Jamie Moyer was older than Brown is now when Brown was born.

  9. Finally! haha

    I got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night….

    • aap212 5 years ago

      Stop that.

      • hanmansucks 5 years ago

        Yeah, I know that was pretty bad. Glad someone called me out. Just really excited to see what D Brown has to offer.

  11. coolstorybro222 5 years ago

    Oh yeah twenty bucks Astro scouts will be there watching him play.

    • brigr 5 years ago

      umm there would be no point in that. dom brown is not leaving the phil’s organization anytime soon.

    • aap212 5 years ago

      Dan Haren nets a pupu platter of the Angels’ second-tier prospects and the Astros are going to get the guy who was the best prospect left in the minors yesterday in exchange for Oswalt? Or did you mean straight up for Brandon Lyon?

    • The Astros can scout Dom all they want. They need a head start for the next time they face the Phillies and he lights them up.

    • you planning on sending Oswalt, Myers and Pence?

  12. lol no way astros will get brown…what a dumb commment

  13. Here’s the extra offensive spark they wanted! Doc and the Kid tonight, can’t wait!

  14. smc1234 5 years ago

    is he in the lineup tonight?

  15. philliesfan27 5 years ago

    Very excited, most I’ve looked forward for a prospect coming up since Cole Hamels

    Or.. does this maybe increase the possibility Werth gets traded? If Brown comes up and absolutely rakes between now and Saturday, would the Phils be a little more comfortable trading Werth and getting by until Victorino returns from the DL?

    • malcolmec 5 years ago

      Well if Brown comes up and rakes it means the Phillies will be more likely to let Werth walk after the season and use whatever money they were planning to offer him to sign someone else (a pitcher, perhaps?)

      That would be a big step backwards, imagine the Phillies OF production if it’s Ibanez, Fransico, & Brown, no bueno.

    i remember when cole hamels came up from wilkes-barre/scranton……the hype was huge….this might be even bigger

  19. ahh this is so SICK. i dont even care if he doesn’t do well, this is the future!

  20. Bozo31215 5 years ago

    While Werth isn’t nearly as good defensively in CF as Victorino I prefer him over Francisco. Francisco seems to have poor judgement or whatever you want to call it on some plays in the outfield.

    Really excited for Brown but get well soon Shane.
