The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 30-year old switch-hitting CF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list due to a right hamstring strain. Victorino has played in 39 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 44 for 155 (.284 avg, .846 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 6 homers, 19 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. The Phillies have called up 23-year old lefty swinging Domonic Brown to replace Victorino on the active roster. Brown has played in 16 games in A+AAA-ball on his rehab assignment from a broken hand and he was 21 for 60 (.350 avg, 1.031 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 4 homers, 14 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Brown got his first taste of the majors for the Phillies last year when he played in 35 games in which he was 13 for 62 (.210 avg, .612 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 2 homers, 13 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He whiffed 24 times while only walking 5 times in his first chance in the majors as he was hacking at the plate. The Phillies need Brown to be better this time around because he’s going to get a lot of P.T. right away for them.
