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.
