With Shane Victorino on his way to Los Angeles, the Phillies have called up outfielder Domonic Brown from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Brown was scratched from today’s noon lineup and is currently on his way to Washington D.C. to meet up with the team.
In 60 games with the IronPigs, Brown was hitting .286 with 13 doubles, two triples, five homers and 28 RBIs in 236 plate appearances.
Brown has battled injuries twice this year with his hand and his knee. Both injuries kept him out of action but none of them were serious, nor have set his skills back.
Brown has played all three outfield positions with the IronPigs so far this season so it isn’t clear where he’ll play in the field in Philadelphia. He should be an every day starter though, with there seemingly nothing to lose on this season for the Phillies.
