Philadelphia Phillies rookie outfielder Domonic Brown broke his right hand during spring training and had the hook of the hamate bone removed. It was tough news especially after getting his first hit.
After a month of waiting around to play baseball, Dom Brown has been playing in extended Spring Training games until he is cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignments:
On Saturday April 23, 2011, Brown made six plate appearances, going 1-3 with an RBI, scored a run, walked three times and struck out once. On Monday April 26, 2011, he made five appearances, going 4-5 with two home runs. Pretty good, don't you think?
After today's game, Dom Brown is set to begin rehab assignment with High A level Clearwater on Wednesday.
This is great news, even Jiwan James says he is ready!
