Brown Could Be Back Next Week

Well, it could have been worse …

Domonic Brown said this morning at Bright House Field that a MRI exam showed only inflammation in his sprained right thumb. Brown sprained the thumb while diving for a ball in a game Monday.

He said he could be back playing in Grapefruit League games next week.

“That bottom hand is tough, especially when it’s swollen,” Brown said. “If it was the top hand I probably could have played. I’ll be fine.”


The Phillies are in Lakeland today, playing the Tigers. Roy Halladay is on the mound, and here is the rest of the Phillies lineup:

  1. Tyson Gillies, CF
  2. Scott Podsednik, LF
  3. Ty Wigginton, 1B
  4. Hunter Pence, RF
  5. Laynce Nix, DH
  6. Carlos Ruiz, C
  7. Hector Luna, 3B
  8. Pete Orr, 2B
  9. Freddy Galvis, SS

Can I take it that the rush to comment here is indicative of how far Brown has fallen off the collective radar?
