Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown suffered a concussion on July 23 when he dove for a Carlos Beltran line drive at Busch Stadium in St. Louis and landed hard on his head. Brown hasn’t played in a live game since, but that should change this week.
Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the 25-year-old slugger “thinks he will be ready for a rehab assignment beginning Monday.” The tentative plan calls for Brown to start out in Low-A ball and then work his way up through the Phillies’ many minor league affiliates. He will be monitored closely throughout the rehab assignment for any new or lingering concussion-related symptoms.
Brown was batting .271/.316/.531 with 24 home runs and 69 RBI in 99 games before the injury. Philadelphia is currently 15 1/2 games back of Atlanta in the National League East standings with a 50-60 record.
