Domonic Brown is not in the Phillies' lineup Tuesday and manager Ryne Sandberg said that the outfielder needs "a little mental break."

"Maybe a little mental break and start over," Sandberg said. "Maybe something will click and he'll get to where he was." Brown got in some extra work in the batting cage Tuesday, trying to level out a swing that Sandberg feels has become too upper-cutting. The skipper indicated that Brown might sit out additional games, though he didn't reveal how long the break would be. "Just day to day," he said. "What I feel like."

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Thursday that the team is not considering optioning Domonic Brown to Triple-A "at this stage."

"We have to get Dom right here before we start thinking about that stuff," Amaro added. With a .200/.258/.297 batting line through his first 190 plate appearances this season, Brown has been one of the least productive regulars in the game. That said, he's earned a long leash after last year's breakout campaign. Brown hit 18 homers between May and June last season, so he's certainly capable of getting red-hot and turning his year around.
