Domonic Brown So, how about that plan for Domonic Brown to replace Jayson Werth for the Phillies?

The Phillies may be getting a little nervous after the 23-year old's early departure from the Dominican Winter League. Brown hit just .069 (2 for 29) in nine games, the Philadelphia Inquirer 's Matt Gelb writes . Phillies manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told Gelb that Brown was feeling tired and sluggish, so the team decided to bring him home.

It's a small sample size after a long season, so it shouldn't mean too much -- but let's just say it wouldn't be unprecedented for fans to overreact.

Brown played 93 games in the minor leagues in 2010 and 35 for the Phillies.

Phillies bring Brown back from Dominican

not worried about it.  it was a long year and he didn't play a lot towards the end of the season.  its more important for him to be getting getting ready for next season.  it would be nice if he was hanging out with Howard hitting the gym and working on his swing.  i'm looking for Brown to have a nice year mainly playing against righties.
