GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said Brown will need to start producing to stay in the lineup, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "He's going to be getting some chances," Amaro said. "But his leash isn't as long as it used to be. That's been communicated to him."

Brown has been getting fairly regular playing time since returning from the minors last month. On Wednesday, he made his 18th start in the Phillies' last 24 games. He went 2-for-4 with a double Wednesday, but those types of games have been few and far between for Brown. He is hitting just .205/.275/.260 and has not homered yet this season.

Brown is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports.

Brown continues to receive most of the starts in right field, but he will receive the day off Wednesday. Ben Revere will slide over from center field to play in right, while Odubel Herrera will enter the lineup in center field and bat seventh for the Phillies.

Brown is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports.

After starting the last several games in a row in right field for the Phillies, Brown will surprisingly find himself on the bench for the second contest in a row, as Jeff Francoeur draws the start for Game 1 of the twin bill. It's expected that Brown will be out there for the second game of the day, but it doesn't appear as though he's fully wrested the starting job for himself just yet. He'll probably need to make further improvement upon his .179/.304/.256 batting line before any notable separation from Francoeur is created.

Brown went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

Brown was making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Manager Ryne Sandberg said he will mix and match in the outfield in order to get Brown starts. The rotation likely means four or five starts per week for Brown unless he hits and forces the Phillies to give him additional playing time.

Brown will start in right field and bat sixth Sunday against the Pirates.

Brown will make his first start since Saturday's promotion, and will continue to compete for reps in the corner outfield spots moving forward. He remains an intriguing option with the potential to provide power numbers, but needs to earn consistent playing time before becoming a reliable fantasy option.

Brown was recalled by the Phillies following their game Saturday.

He replaces the struggling Darin Ruf, and will offer the Phillies another warm body to deploy in the outfield corners. While Brown has more perceived upside than most players in the Phillies' outfield, he has also struggled to reach his potential throughout his professional career. He had two home runs and 10 steals while hitting .257 in 52 games at Triple-A and could offer modest counting stats while playing four or five days per week.

GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said Friday that Brown is not ready to be back in the majors yet, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Brown is hitting .250/.301/.311 with no home runs and 10 stolen bases in 180 at-bats for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies surely want to see Brown start driving the ball out of the park, but thus far his power has been absent.

Brown is batting .244 with no home runs in 179 plate appearances at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

Few players in the league have seen their stock fall as far as Brown in the last two years, despite the fact that the outfielder theoretically remains in his prime at 27 years old. After an All-Star 2013 campaign that included 27 homers and 83 RBI, Brown's power has all but dissipated ever since, with seemingly no obvious explanation. The Phillies are in dire need of outfield help, but at this point, Brown doesn't look as though he would be a better alternative than the meager likes of Cody Asche and Jeff Francoeur.

Manager Ryne Sandberg said it will be an organizational decision on when Brown rejoins the Phillies, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Brown played his 23rd game for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday since being optioned there on April 28. He is hitting .312 since then, but has yet to homer.
