Domonic Brown signed a minor league deal with the Rockies, looking to revive his promising career in the Mile High City. Brown was cut by the Phillies in 2015 and had a .639 OPS with Triple-A Buffalo (Toronto) in 2016. He had an ,818 OPS in an All-Star season in 2013.
Domonic Brown was the #4 prospect in 2011 and hit 23 home runs in the first half of the 2013 season; he only finished the season with 27 home runs and has fallen off of the baseball grid since that point. Brown struck out 127 times in 204 games with the Phillies from 2014-2015, posting a .634 OPS and playing only 63 games in 2015. The Rockies have a crowded outfield with Carlos Gonzalez, Gerardo Parra, Raimel Tapia, and David Dahl fighting for two corner OF spots, so Brown is a pinch-hitter at best.
Domonic Brown went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.
Brown continues to receive consistent playing time in Philadelphia, but he's once again not coming close to his breakout 2013 campaign. He's only managed an OPS of .638 this season.
Domonic Brown continued his hot streak on Thursday in a 10-8 loss. David Buchanan gave up two runs in the top of the first, but the Phillies jumped on Zack Greinke for a 5-spot in the 1st. However, the Phillies couldn't maintain that lead.
Brown went 2-for-5 with a homer, one run scored, and 4 RBI. Brown has been scorching hot over the past few weeks and deserves a look in any league format going forward.
The Phillies continued their hot streak with a 9-3 victory over Atlanta on Friday night. Domonic Brown went 2-for-5 with a 2-run homer.
For those of you keeping score at home, this is two days I a row that Brown has left the yard. It seems as though Brown had figured something out. He's hitting .364 over the past week with two homers, four runs scored, and six RBI. If he can keep this hot streak up, he could become a very sneaky pickup with a lot of upside.
The Phillies continued their hot streak on Thursday with a 4-1 victory over Atlanta. Up 3-1, Dom Brown added the fourth Phillies run with his first homer of the season.
It will be interesting to see how Brown looks moving forward. This could be a hump he has been trying to get over, and could lead to very good things. Or, this could be a miniscule bright spot in his mediocre season. If he gets hot, he may be worth a pickup. But, as of now, he's best left on the waiver wire.
