Phillies place Domonic Brown on concussion disabled list

Domonic Brown sat out yesterday’s game due to post-concussion symptoms after banging his head on the ground while attempting a diving catch Tuesday and today the Phillies placed him on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

It’s another unfortunate development in a season full of them for the Phillies, as Brown was one of the team’s biggest bright spots while hitting .271 with 24 homers and an .847 OPS in his first full season.

Typically when players go on the concussion disabled list they end up missing more than seven days–and often significantly more–but hopefully Brown’s recovery from a brain injury the exception.

    Well, with Ben Revere already gone and all the other injuries, this is the final nail. So it’s time to look ahead Phillies fans. It was a great run that ended a little sooner than it should have thanks to lousy management. I won’t waste the keystrokes on the names. YOU know who you are.

    I look forward to Cody Asche, Maikel Franco and/or Jesse Biddle next season. And Mr. Montgomery, since you will soon have the cable millions coming in, perhaps you could pry Senor Stanton from the Marlins for a couple prospects and a lotta cash for Mr. Loria’s greedy pocket. This the only way we’re going to get the big bopper this team sorely needs.

      What prospects? The Phillies have arguably the 2nd worst farm system right next to the Angels. There is nothing to trade! No one wants an erroding Howard, overrated Papelbon, etc.No one wants to take the contracts of Lee or Hamels unless Tex or NY gets desperate. I think the cellar is going to become familiar for them for at least a few seasons until they can infuse some young talent

        Well you think wrong.
        This isn’t a small market team. They can turn the ship around through free agency and international signings. Lee and Hamels are both still great players (Hamels is having a down year, but should bounce back next season). They have a good amount of cash coming off the books, for example 20M from Halladay and $15M from Utley.

        Their farm system is weak, but it is not “arguably the second worst”. Its at least on par, if not better, with the Tigers, Giants, and White Sox. And if they become sellers by trading away guys it will only help bolster the farm.

        While the present is bleak, the future is no where near as dim as you believe it to be.
