Brown back to work at Triple-A after knee injury
LOS ANGELES -- Triple-A Lehigh Valley outfielder Domonic Brown is back on the field after missing a month with an injured right knee.

He has had trouble staying healthy this season and getting the plate appearances the Phillies want him to have. He is hitting .267 with 10 doubles, two triples, four home runs, 23 RBIs and a .732 OPS in 48 games with Lehigh Valley. It will be interesting to see how the Phillies handle Brown if they become sellers before the July 31 Trade Deadline. Perhaps they will give Brown a chance to play at the big league level.

"He's going to get a shot," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "Will he be given a shot? Yeah."

Manuel couldn't say when, however.

"Not until he's ready," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He's got to play. He's doing well, though. He's in a good frame of mind. He's swinging the bat well. He's playing good defense. He's just got to play."
