Dom Brown Slated for Rehab Assignment Monday
Domonic Brown will begin a rehab assignment Monday at Low-A Lakewood. Brown has been sidelined since July 23, when he suffered a concussion while diving for a ball.
Brown has been symptom-free for four days and passed an ImPACT concussion test on Wednesday, so he's slowly ramping up baseball activities.
The big question will be who gets bounced from the line-up when Brown returns, currently with Brown out, Michael Young as played first base and Darin Ruf has moved to left field. However, once Brown comes back, who will become the odd man out?
Could Brown move back to right field and bump Delmon Young who really doesn't have a future on this team? Could Ruf go back to first base and the Phillies continue to work to deal Young? Could Young move back to third base and the Cody Asche experiment be over already - doubtful.
Most likely, Ruf, and the two Young's platoon for time with Brown playing every day.
