General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said sending Domonic Brown to the minors is not an option at this time.
Whether he's working out the kinks in the minors or in Triple-A is irrelevant. There should be no reason to not let him do it in the majors if the Phillies are basically willing to concede an out whenever he's up. We're not sure at what point the team will pack in the idea of Brown being an effective outfielder, but it's obviously not soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Matt Duffy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Duffy has a five-game hit streak going and has homered twice in those five games. His .361 BABIP will tail off, but he could still hit .255-.260, which is about average in mixed leagues. The real question is whether he can keep hitting for power. His HR/FB rate won’t hold, but he’s also hitting very few fly balls so far. If he elevates the ball a bit more, he could continue to provide some pop. Analysis: Brett Talley
