Worth noting


• Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown has been hitting the ball hard since his first Grapefruit League game.

Brown went 3-for-4 with a home run, his fifth of the spring, and two RBIs in Monday's 17-10 loss to the Braves at Champion Stadium. He is hitting .400 (24-for-60).

"Domonic is swinging good, man," Manuel said.

• Darin Ruf struggled early, but has looked better recently.

Ruf went 2-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI. He is hitting .320 (8-for-25) in his last eight games.

"He's hitting better," Manuel said. "He's going to hit. He's hit everywhere he's been. He's got a good swing."
