Domonic Brown Dealing With Sore Achilles
Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown exited Thursday's game against the Yankees with Achilles soreness. Brown said that he's dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles.
"I’m definitely frustrated for sure," Brown admitted to reporters. "It seemed like we were going in the right direction, it was getting a little bit better."
Brown revealed that he's dealt with soreness for the past two weeks and felt it grab a little bit when he was running back on a Chase Headley home run, he then felt it grab when he was walking to the on-deck circle when he was coming to bat.
"I want to be in there, spring training or not," Brown explained.
He'll be re-evaluated on Friday before more is known about his status.
After his breakout all-star season of 2013 where he hit .279 with 27 home runs and 83 RBI, Brown struggled last season. If the Phillies have any hope of contending this season, they need Brown to rebound from his disastrous 2014 where he hit just .235 with just 10 home runs and 63 RBI.
"I feel pretty good at the plate," Brown stated. "I don’t want to miss any time, but this is part of the game."
Brown is hitting .259 this spring with just one extra base hit in 27 at-bats, playing right field this year after playing left field last year.
