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.”
