Just when Domonic Brown was swinging a good bat for the IronPigs, another knee injury slows down his path back to the Phillies.
The Phillies have diagnosed Brown with right knee inflammation and he underwent an MRI this afternoon, assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said today.
As posted by Matt Gelb, Brown was hitting .300 in 11 games this month with three home runs and a .939 OPS.
Brown, 24, as a pretty rough history with injuries. Last month, he was hampered by a lingering left hamstring injury. Brown was sidelined this past spring training by thumb and neck injuries.
Last spring, Brown fractured the hook of the hamate bone that cost him most of Grapefruit League play and a shot at cracking the Opening Day roster.
