Tendinitis in Achilles temporarily shuts down Brown

PHILADELPHIA -- An MRI has revealed tendinitis in Domonic Brown's right Achilles, and he won't be doing any baseball activities "for a while," he said. "At least a week."

But Brown does expect to play again before the end of the season, which comes on Sept. 29 against the Braves at Turner Field.

"I just want to get the inflammation out of there," he said. "It keeps nagging."
