Domonic Brown (strep throat) is not in the Phillies' starting lineup for his fifth straight game Sunday.
Grady Sizemore has been playing left field for the last five games. Originally it was believed that he was just going to see more time out there, but now the reports of strep throat for Brown seem to make more sense out of the lengthy absence. Consider him day-to-day and expect to see more Sizemore in the coming days.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Astros optioned Matt Dominguez to minor-league camp on Sunday
After playing in the majors each of the last two seasons with the Marlins and the Astros it appears he will have to prove to his team that he is still a big league caliber player. At best, Dominguez can provide the long ball for desperate owners if he makes it back to the big leagues, but his batting average (career .233 BA) is hard to live with if that situation arises.
