The Braves have Heyward, the Mets have Davis, the Marlins have Stanton and the Nats have that one dude. Based on this latest news, it’s not out of the question that we’ll have a five-for-five
phenom summer in the NL East!
Domonic Brown is headed for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Chuck LaMar, the Phillies’ assistant general manager in charge of player
development, said the move could be made as soon as today.
Brown, the Phillies’ top minor-league prospect, has earned the
promotion with a spectacular first half at double-A Reading. In 65
games, the 22-year-old right fielder has batted .318 with 16 doubles,
three triples, 15 home runs and 47 RBIs.
If Brown tears up the International League, and if the Mets, Braves and Phillies remain in a dogfight all summer, it makes all kinds of sense to assume that he’ll play in Philly before the year is out, no?
