Domonic Brown injured his right thumb diving for a ball in the outfield earlier this week and now he’s headed for an MRI exam.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the initial diagnosis is a sprained thumb, but the Phillies will have a better idea about his recovery timetable once the MRI results are in.

Brown seemed likely to begin this season at Triple-A anyway, as the Phillies have continued to resist the urge to simply give one of the better outfield prospects in baseball the opportunity to play every day in the majors at age 24. He’s hit .298 with an .843 OPS in 68 games at Triple-A so far.
