Domonic Brown Will Play Baseball This Season
Domonic Brown is moving north of the border.
The former Philadelphia Phillies All-Star has signed a minor league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, per a team announcement. The contract also includes an invite to Spring Training in Dunedin, FL.
Brown never really clicked with the city of Philadelphia and it was clear he was in need of a change of scenery. The problem became his value, which plummeted, after being one of the hottest prospects in the majors. Brown was once ranked ahead of Mike Trout.
Brown, 28, leaves one month of legacy with the Phillies in May of 2013 which helped him make an All-Star game. Other than that, Brown finished his Phillies career batting .246 with a .305 on-base percentage from 2010-2015.
Brown was also yo-yoed back and forth from the minor leagues to the majors and also changed positions in the outfield from time to time.
Brown could regain his form in the Blue Jays system and is worth watching now that he's out of Philadelphia.
