Phillies activate Domonic Brown from concussion disabled list

Domonic Brown went 3-for-5 with a homer last night in his first (and it turns out last) minor-league rehab game. Today the Phillies activated him from the seven-day concussion disabled list.

Brown has been sidelined since hitting his head on the ground going for a diving catch on July 23 and just started swinging a bat again Thursday, but passed multiple concussion tests within the past week.

Brown was having a breakout season before the brain injury, hitting .271 with 24 homers and an .847 OPS in 99 games at age 25 after failing to appear in more than 60 games for the Phillies in any of the three previous seasons. To make room for his return the Phillies designated Laynce Nix for assignment with two months remaining on his two-year, $2.5 million deal.

    I don’t know which to be happier about, that Brown is finally back or that Nix is finally GONE. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but the two-year experiment of using him as a potent off-the-bench bat was an unmitigated disaster. Carry on, my failing team.

    With Nix DFAd, I need a new Waste of Roster spot. Thinking D. Young, though Martinez & McDonald surely qualify.

    Just hope they didn’t rush Brown back needlessly. Gonna need him fully healthy next Opening Day.

    Finally the Phillies have someone in the lineup under the age of 47
