The Phillies have outrighted outfielder Brian Bogusevic. Bogusevic spent most of the season with Triple-A Lehigh, putting up a solid .296/.359/.424 line with 12 homers and 24 steals, but the Phillies will move forward without the 31 year old.
Phillies outfielder Brian Bogusevic will get the start in right field and bat fifth in the order Tuesday, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Bogusevic has hit well in a small sample size with the Phillies so far, (.321/.367.500 in 28 at-bats) but he could be in line for more opportunities at the plate if he produces against Marlins' starter Tom Koehler on Tuesday.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. confirmed Tuesday that outfielder Domonic Brown will indeed start the season on the 15-day disabled list, according to Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. "It's the right thing to do physically and also with regards to his preparedness," Amaro said, per the Inquirer. "We want to make sure that he's playing well, getting his legs underneath him, swinging the bat and doing the things he needs to do to get ready for the season to help us in Philadelphia." Brown is dealing with left Achilles tendinitis. Brian Bogusevic, Jordan Danks, Jeff Francoeur are all viable candidates to replace Brown at right field to start the season.
