The Phillies have placed starting CF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a left abdominal strain. Victorino has played in 99 games for the Phillies this year and he is 101 of 404 (.250 avg, .749 OPS) with 59 runs scored, 15 homers, 53 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. The Phillies have recalled their top prospect, 23-year old lefty swinging outfielder Domonic Brown to replace Victorino on the active roster and in the starting lineup. Brown has played in 93 games in AA+AAA-ball this year and he was 112 of 343 (.327 avg, .980 OPS) with 65 runs scored, 20 homers, 68 RBIs and 17 stolen bases. Brown has now played in 424 games in his five years in the minors and he is 472 of 1,593 (.296 avg, .836 OPS) with 265 runs scored, 48 homers, 232 RBIs and 89 stolen bases. The Phillies will get a good glimpse of the future starting tonight.
