Domonic Brown: Playing days likely over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown recently told Matt Gelb of The Athletic that he's "ready to call it quits" and about "90 percent" sure that he'll retire from professional baseball.

Once one of baseball's top prospects and an All-Star for the Phillies in 2013, when he slugged 27 home runs, Brown's time in the majors came to an end only two years later. Between 2014 and 2015, Brown slashed just .233/.285/.349 (76 wRC+) with 15 long balls in 716 plate appearances, prompting the Phillies to outright him off the 40-man roster prior to the 2016 season. He stuck around in affiliated ball the following two years before spending the most recent two seasons in the Mexican League. Brown told Gelb that he plans to begin a coaching career as he moves on from his playing days.

Rockies' Domonic Brown: Signs minor league contract with Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown agreed to a minor league deal with the Rockies on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

The 29-year-old has fallen off quite a bit since being named an All-Star in 2013 with the Phillies, a season where he slashed .272/.324/.494 in 540 plate appearances. He spent all of last year in Triple-A Buffalo, slashing just .239/.303/.336 in 509 plate appearances. The Rockies are taking a flyer here, but it seems likely that he'll end up back in Triple-A.

Domonic Brown: Joining Jays on minor league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is joining the Blue Jays on a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training, Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports.

Brown was terrible for a second straight year in 2015, eventually getting outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster in October. He's fallen a long way since posting a .272/.324/.494 slash line in 2013, but he's still only 28 years old.

Domonic Brown: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown has elected free agency, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

With Brown coming off a miserable 2015 season and arbitration-eligible again this winter, the Phillies just decided to cut bait, outrighting the 28-year-old last week. Brown has refused the assignment and will hit the open market, but he is not guaranteed to receive a major-league offer despite being just two seasons removed from a 27-homer campaign.

Phillies' Domonic Brown homers, drives in four in loss Thursday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Phillies right fielder Domonic Brown had a big day at the plate, but the Phillies came up short in the 10-8 loss to the Dodgers. Brown went 2 for 5 with four RBI, including a three-run home run off Zack Greinke in the first inning. The big fly gave the Phillies a two-run lead, but the Dodgers would rally back for the victory.

Brown, who began the year at Triple-A, has been putting up good numbers as of late. All three of his home runs have come over his past nine games, during which he's batting .324 with nine RBI. 

"Yeah, he's been swinging the bat better," Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said, per "It looks like he's playing with more confidence. It's nice to see. As I've said before, we want him to hit and hit for power. He's starting to do that a little bit. If we can get him back to the year he made the All-Star team, that's what we're trying to do. But it is encouraging."

Phillies OF Domonic Brown slams two hits Sunday to reach .200
by Marty Gitlin |

It took a long stint in the minors and three weeks with the Phillies. But outfielder Domonic Brown finally has his average up to .200.

That might not seem like much, but it took some work after he had struggled upon his promotion. Brown rapped two singles Sunday against Washington, driving in a run in the second and scoring one in the fourth. He has hit safely in six of his last seven starts and has five hits in his last 14 at-bats.

Brown, who exploded onto the scene with 27 home runs in 2013, has just 10 since and none this season.

Phillies RF Domonic Brown still struggling after promotion
by Marty Gitlin |

Right fielder Domonic Brown has started the last six games as the Phillies hope he can recapture the magic that made him one of the most productive players in the National League two years ago.

Instead, he is providing numbers that motivated them to send him to the minors.

Brown is batting just .174 (4-for-23) since coming back - though it is just a small sample size. It is hoped his Sunday performance, in which he doubled and scored twice, will get him kick-started. The double was his first extra-base hit of the year. And it's encouraging that he has struck out just three times.
